PreSchool-Grade 1. A story that picks up right where Daisy Thinks She's a Baby (Knopf, 1994) ends. Each colorful double-page spread features a woman taking care of her baby on the left side while her Bull Terrier, Daisy, distributes comparable care to her three puppies on the right. Children are sure to delight in the easy back-and-forth between the human's child and the canine's. The irresistible illustrations contrast the reactions of baby and puppies?Baby giggles when it's bathtime; puppy cringes under Daisy's cleaning lick; Baby smiles when Mommy carries her; puppy frowns imploringly when Daisy carries him by the scruff of the neck. The story begins on the inside front cover with an illustration of the playful, mischievous pups; the inside back cover completes the sense of closure with illustrations of them sleeping. The realistic colored-pencil and crayon drawings are presented on uncluttered pages with lots of white space. An easy and enjoyable tale for preschool story hours as well as for beginning readers, and a must for any library that owns the first book.?Christy Norris, Valley Cottage Library, NY

Daisy is a bull terrier and new mother, running a parallel life with a human mom: Both roust their charges out of bed, feed and clean them, watch as the kids scatter things everywhere at playtime: ``Mommy cleans up her baby's mess. But Daisy doesn't.'' Then it's upstairs, where the human mother finds her bed taken over by her baby, Daisy, and the puppies, all snoozing away. She joins them. Kopper, following up Daisy Thinks She Is a Baby (1994), makes an important point about common ground in a few pages, finding memorable humor in the ways the mothers take care of their children. Parenting styles will differ, but children will see the similarities and remember them, especially as depicted in the free- for-all scenes. Kopper catches the mother terrier's gestures perfectly--the cleaning tongue, the ambling feet, the moment of repose--to make the connection even more immediate.
