Oops-a-daisy by Claire Freedman was a Harriet favorite over the summer. It's the story of a young rabbit learning how to hop. Each time she hops she falls over one way or another.

The accompanying illustrations are adorable and charming. They capture the mother's loving patience and Daisy's range of emotions from determination, frustration, and confidence.

Daisy learning to hop is much like a young child learning to walk. Harriet was reading the book in the final run up to her October dance recita

Sweet book with adorable illustrations.
Daisy the rabbit is learning how to hop, but is having trouble. Mama teaches her about perseverance by having her keep on trying and showing Daisy that others struggle in learning new things too.
Both my boys (ages 2 and 5) really enjoy this book.

The mommy bunny is teaching her baby how to hop (and Oops she falls a lot) and encourages to keep trying and working hard to do it one day. I like this book and when I read it to Ethan I tell him that one day he will walk too.
really enjoying this author right now. I recommend her books for the kiddos. The books have beautiful pictures, and that just makes the stories a little more real and exciting.

I’ve been a writer for over 15 years now, but it wasn’t planned!

I had a variety of jobs, including secretary, trainee buyer at Harrods, dental nurse, production assistant in a reprographic and printing company and various others.
