Meet Digger and Daisy! They are brother and sister. These dogs like to explore their world and see new things. Sometimes they agree with each other. Sometimes they disagree. But no matter the situation, one thing always stays the same--their love and concern for each other. In playful, simple stories written especially for the K-1 audience, author Judy Young explores the dynamics and nuances of the sibling relationship. In Digger and Daisy Go on a Picnic, Digger and Daisy walk to the park for a picnic. On the way there Digger's keen sense of smell leads him to explore his surroundings, ending up with an encounter with a skunk.

Judy Young remembers showing her grandmother a poem she had written when she was about ten years old, and she has been in love with writing ever since. One of her most cherished honors as a writer was attending performances in which her book, R is for Rhyme, A Poetry Alphabet, was interpreted and choreographed by the Tanner Creative Dance Program and Children's Dance Theatre at the University of Utah for their 58th Annual Performance. In addition to writing, Judy specializes in school visits and writing workshops for students and is a frequent speaker for professional educational organizations. With twenty years experience in the public schools, Judy's presentations are directly related to school curriculum. Judy resides near Springfield, MO, with her artist husband, Ross. They have two grown children and several dogs. In her spare time, Judy enjoys hiking, fishing and gallivanting around the country in "Arlo," the Young's traveling studio.From School Library Journal:
K-Gr 2—This early reader series features dog siblings Digger and Daisy. In Picnic, Daisy stops to look at things, while Digger likes to smell them. Daisy tells him the name of different objects that catch his attention: flowers, a lemon tree, pie on the neighbor's windowsill, and hot dogs on a grill. When Digger explores a golf hole, his nose is filled with dirt, and he cannot smell any of their picnic food, but his nose recovers as they approach home and encounter a skunk. In Zoo, Digger tries to copy the animals. He falls over when he tries to stand on one leg like the flamingo, attempts to climb a tree like the monkeys, wants to eat leaves from a tree like the giraffes, and learns to swim in a pond like the ducks. The books feature large a font, with lines that are short and easy to scan, and the bold, cartoon illustrations cheerfully reinforce the text with ample picture clues. Young readers will enjoy sharing these excursions.—Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI
