I have no doubt we'll be hearing more from Daisy, the heroine of this new title. Since Daisy collects words, she decides to give a special gift to her beloved teacher, Ms. Goldner, after she announces her impending marriage. She spends the next few days trying to come up with the perfect word, but it isn't easy to do so. Once she does, her classmates agree that she has chosen the best word for the occasion. I liked the precocious nature of Daisy and her creative side, not to mention her proclivity for collecting interesting words. Since she has lists of made-up words, quiet-time words, and sweetest words, among other lists, elementary teachers and students might want to use her lists as starting points and add their own favorite words. The story is short, simple, and easy to read, and sweet without being too cloying. I also liked the simple illustrations, particularly those that show Ms. Goldner.
