Curly-haired Daisy likes picking lemons on sunny days, playing kickball and making long dandelion chains. But more than any of these things, she loves words and even compiles lists of her favorites in a bright green notebook covered with purple polka dots. When Daisy's beloved teacher, Miss Goldner, becomes engaged and must move to another town, Daisy decides to give her the ultimate gift: the perfect word. But with so many good words to choose from, finding just the right one isn't easy.

I love words! I love introducing new words to my children and my students. Daisy's Perfect Word is a perfect book for doing just that. This book is full of great vocabulary and is great for young readers. Daisy has a special notebook that she uses to make word lists. She has quiet words, sweet words, rainbow words, and more. At the end of the story there are a few pages that actually resemble Daisy's notebook with all the lists of words she has made.

I think this would be perfect to use in a classroom setting, especially if you use the CAFE strategies--tune into interesting words. The chapters are short and you could easily read a couple of chapters a day to your class.

This book is wonderful from beginning to end!
