I'm not quite sure what I think about this book. My toddler clearly likes it a lot, has requested it several times since we brought it home from the library, and just generally enjoys looking at the duck illustrations. I like that Daisy loves her baby brother from the very start. The book depicts a devoted, nurturing sibling relationship. So many "new baby" books start out with an upset older sibling, which can be annoying if the big brother/sister wasn't inclined to be jealous in the first plac ...more

I chose to read this book because I loved its companion "Come Along Daisy." This book was well written and has colorful illustrations. The book teaches a good lesson on patience. Daisy was patient with her Mamma's egg when it didn't hatch with the rest of them and still sat on it because she knew that it had to hatch sometime. Even after her mom told her that sometimes they just don't hatch, Daisy had faith that it would.

This is a cute book about Daisy a duck, who is excited about having a new sibling, but the egg doesn't hatch with her aunt's eggs. She pitches in and helps the egg by sitting on it for a while. The story gets a little dark when her mama is rather callous about "some eggs never hatch," which is true, but a little harsh for a 4 yr old. The book does have a happy ending, and the kids did enjoy it in storytime, they were just worried for a little while.
Another cute picture book, with soft painted illustrations, for kids about to become an older brother or sister. Daisy and her mother are awaiting the arrival of Daisy's cousins and her new little brother or sister. Her cousins hatch first and eventually Daisy gets a new baby brother named Pip. Recommended for ages 6 months - 5 years, 3 stars.

I love Daisy stories. There is a series that follows the life adventures of a young duckling named Daisy. This story tells about how she and her mother welcome a new little brother to the family. This book really highlights Daisy's character. It encourages you to read the other companion books.
Listen, folks. If you want levels of cuteness that will make your head explode AND cure cancer, this is your book. Oh my lord, I want to pet Daisy and kiss her tiny little head and carry her with me everywhere I go, forever and ever and ever.

This is a cute story about a duck who helps her Mom and Aunt hatch some eggs. Patience and persistence are rewarded when one egg is left unhatched. It's a sweet story with adorbable illustrations. We enjoyed reading this story together.

A little too childish for my girls. They kind of just glanced over it, I could see this really working for a mom who is pregnant and trying to reinforce the idea of a baby brother or sister.
Daisy the duck eagerly awaits for his new brother or sister to hatch...wating is so hard!

Used for "Feathered Friends" Storytime-October, 2009.
