School Library Journal - Digger and Daisy Plant a Garden
School Library Journal (Jul 2016)
It is spring, so Digger the dog and his big sister Daisy decide to plant a garden. Daisy plants lots of different seeds that will be good to eat, but Digger plants a surprise. Daisy’s seeds begin to sprout, but nothing appears to be growing in Digger’s spot. When the garden is ready with lots of vegetables to eat, Digger tells Daisy to dig up his surprise, a bone, which, of course, for dogs, will also be good to eat. This early reader features a large font size, controlled vocabulary with lots of word repetition, and friendly cartoon illustrations that enhance the story, making this a fun choice for newly independent readers. VERDICT A solid addition where other Digger and Daisy titles are popular.
