Editorial Reviews

Review

"As the protagonist struggles with a difficult peer relationship and takes readers through her day-to-day life, there's enough tension to keep youngsters engaged. Daisy's irrepressible but realistic enthusiasm for life is charming and irresistible. Her story is a perfect next step for children who have outgrown Jane O'Connor's 'Fancy Nancy' books but aren't quite ready for Andrew Clements's 'Frindle'." --School Library Journal

Susan Mitchell feels very fortunate to work full-time as an illustrator, with 18 published titles, including Reaching with Kids Can Press. When she is not drawing or painting, she loves to sew and make soft toys that resemble her illustrations. She also loves to visit schools to talk about her illustration process and hopes that she inspires some children to become illustrators when they grow up.

Format: Hardcover
I read this book to my second grade class, and the children couldn't wait for our read aloud time each day. The story is delightful, and Daisy's passion sparked a class discussion about each student's favorite word. The conversation then inspired every child to put pencil to paper as a means to share those words.

By Culture Man on May 8, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Daisy's Perfect Word captures the innocence, immediacy and intensity of a child thrilled by the pure magic of language and the written word. It took me joyfully, tearfully, back to my own childhood crush on reading. By the book's end -- and I was reading this charmingly child-size volume alone -- I was sobbing. Feder is a skillful wordsmith with clear and loving empathy with Daisy's totally engaged life. Sandra Feder has four children. Lucky them, and lucky us. I'll be reading this, with my grandchildren tucked around me, ASAP.

A Kid's Review on April 19, 2012
Format: Hardcover
When I finished the last page of this PERFECT book, I asked my mom "can I have a journal to write words like Daisy did?" I loved reading this book! It was cleverly written, and I loved how it made me think about what was going to come next. I couldn't wait to find out what the perfect word was. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves words and who loves to read.

By A. Levine on March 1, 2012
Format: Hardcover
My son and I just finished this book. It is creatively written and kept us engaged throughout. The author tells the story in such a way that you and your child can discuss which word you feel would be the perfect word. There is also the opportunity to discuss how Daisy handles her relationship conflict/resolution. Very current for elementary school children. I would recommend this to other parents.
