Daisy thinks she is a baby and loves to do all the things that the real Baby does. But Daisy is a dog and Baby is fed up - she wants her pram and her blankets back. Luckily Daisy soon dicovers that she can't be a baby any more, because now she has babies of her very own.

Ages 2-6. Containing slightly more than 100 words and illustrated with charming pictures, this lively, funny tale is guaranteed to charm the socks off anyone who picks it up. Bull terrier Daisy thinks she's a baby--but the "real" baby in the house isn't amused. Daisy eats baby's breakfast, rides in the stroller, steals baby's toys and blanket, and loves to cuddle on Mom's lap ("The real baby hates that!!"). But the "real" baby needn't be concerned for long. In the last double-page spread, Daisy has backed out of the competition to become a mommy, and you can bet "the real baby likes that" a lot. Endpapers, front and back, show a harried human mom dealing with the cherubic child and the splendidly mischievous dog, while the artwork inside delivers grand close-ups of the rivaling duo. Daisy is pictured in especially nice detail; nursery colors befitting the story make the artwork light and airy, and the sweet, expressive faces of both Daisy and her youthful, perplexed opponent will leave readers totally delighted. Sure to be popular with young and old alike. Stephanie ZvirinFrom School Library Journal:
PreSchool-A patterned story with a surprise ending. Daisy the dog thinks she is a baby and likes to mimic her human counterpart, much to the child's dismay. Every activity, from eating breakfast in a high chair to cuddling in mother's lap is met with the retort: "But the real baby doesn't like that." The turnabout comes when the animal realizes that she "can't be a baby anymore...Because Daisy is a mommy!" And the happy child loves all the puppies. Most of the action is age-appropriate, as is the toddler's possessiveness. Cheerful colored-pencil drawings with plenty of white space make this an inviting story that will be fun to read aloud.
