Daisy Dawson and the Secret Pond (series #2) PDF Print E-mail

What You Need to Know:
• Daisy Dawson is a terrific new addition to the early chapter book category of children's literature .
• We have placed Daisy Dawson in our Reader JR reading level, a safe place for newly independent readers. However, it does have some sophisticated vocabulary, so do check in with your young reader .
• This is a sweet adventure story with a safe ending, nothing too scary here. There is a brush with drowning (a little squirrel gets pulled downstream), so if that is a hot button issue for your child, tread carefully.
• This Daisy Dawson is the second in a series. You will notice no series synopsis in this review, however, because the books can really be read in any order. If that changes as the series grows, we will update.
• Little girls will have a good role model in Daisy, who is brave, kind and spunky.
Sweet Book Summary:
Daisy Dawson is back! With her new found ability - to be able to talk to and understand animals - Daisy sets off on another adventure. For a class project, Daisy must photograph animals in their natural environment. The animals have told Daisy there is a new pair of otters setting up their habitat at the mouth of the river . Daisy and her animal friends decide the otters would make perfect subjects for the habitat study and agree an expedition downstream is in order.

Many of the animals from the first Daisy Dawson are back. Boom the farm dog, Cyril the Squirrel, Meadowsweet the horse and this adventure introduces us to Cyril's rascally niece and nephew, who figure prominently in the adventure.
