almost wordless ... getting lost and being found again ( )
  melodyreads | Oct 27, 2014 |
Daisy's back. She, her blue ball and her owner are off to the park. Somehow the cliche of dogs following squirrels doesn't feel overdone in this book. Daisy is distracted from her beloved blue ball and runs off in search of the squirrel. Raschka manages to convey the universal fear of isolation in the look of one forlorn little doggie. Daisy's guttural "aawoooooooooooooooo" emanates from a scared place that we share. Her subsequent reunion with her owner is equally emotional. Kudos to Raschka for a book that resonates across species.

Because this book is so relatable, I would definitely use it with my elementary students. I think I have enough books for that wordless book week I mentioned in another review. Now to think about the order of presentation. This book and A Ball Daisy would likely come early on in the week, maybe as openers, as they require a bit less interpretation than some other wordless books. Great warmup for drawing inferences and providing "textual" support for those inferences. ( )

In my opinion, this is an interesting book. It uses only pictures to tell the story, and the only sentence used is on the first page saying, “Go get it, Daisy!” Intermittently throughout the book, the young girl also calls to her dog shouting, “Daisy!” This enables young readers and non-readers to understand the story without having the frustration of reading and decoding unknown words. Since this book tells the story through primarily pictures, the illustrations in this book are rather unique. They are painted in watercolors, and I believe that you would be able to tell other books by this author/illustrator just by looking at the pictures. The overall plot is relatable for children, depicting a young girl who loses her dog before being reunited with her at the end. It is simple and enjoyable for children to read and comprehend. I think that the big idea of this book is losing a dog. It gives hope that when a dog is lost, she will eventually find his way back. ( )

Have you ever notices how often squirrels are the harbingers of disaster or chaos? Fortunately the mini-disaster of Daisy getting lost is short lived. Her human promptly comes to the rescue. ( )

This is a really cute wordless book about a girl looking for her dog. The colors are so vibrant and they tell the story so much better than any words could. Very cute.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0449817415, Hardcover)

Young readers, teachers, and librarians will be excited to follow Daisy the dog on her next adventure. With the same emotional intensity that he brought to hisNew York Times bestselling and New York Times Best Illustrated and Caldecott Medal-winning picture book A Ball for Daisy, Raschka has created a story that explores fear as only he can. Any child who has ever felt lost will relate to Daisy's despair upon finding herself in an unfamiliar part of the park after chasing a squirrel. In a nearly wordless picture book, Daisy encounters the unease of being lost and the joys of being found. Raschka's signature swirling, impressionistic illustrations and his affectionate story will particularly appeal to young dog lovers, teachers, parents and, of course, the legions of Daisy fans out there.
