Summary: This book is called Daisy and the Egg. The author is Jane Simmons. The book is all about Daisy patiently waiting for her new brother or sister to arrive. Her aunt Buttercup, is the one to sit on the eggs and help them hatch, three of her own and one of the is daisy's moms. But, when all the eggs hatch but daisy's new brother or sister, Daisy jumps in and helps the egg hatch by never leaving the eggs side.

Personal Reaction: I really enjoyed this book. I thought that the book was super adorable, and great for children at a right age of course. The picture's were so vibrant and beautiful. It made me want to have my own little ducking named Daisy! It also teaches children about hard work and determination and not to give up in life.The story had me worried when the egg didn't hatch at first, but the ending was a happy one.

Classroom Extension:
1. ) This book could be used to show how eggs are hatched from ducks.
2.) This book could also be read when someone is expecting a new baby brother or sister to help them understand better.
3.) This book could be used to show to never give up and keep your faith.

"Daisy and the Egg" is a story about dedication and not losing hope. With Daisy's cousins hatched and her brother did not, Daisy panicked but never lost hope. No one had faith in the hatching of the egg, but Daisy refused to lose hope. Daisy never left the egg, and soon enough the egg hatched and there became her new baby brother! This story proves the benefits of hope. The illustrations are calm and fitting to the text. ( )
