Mama helps Daisy up and shows her that everyone needs to practice things. Little Duck is learning to swim and Little Mouse is learning to climb and gather seeds. Daisy keeps practicing her hopping...whoopsity-oopsity! After a long day, Daisy is an expert hopper. But she’s so tired that Mama Rabbit has to carry her home!

Gaby Hansen is a contributor for the following Tiger Tales Title: Oops-a-Daisy!
PreSchool-Grade 1-Daisy, a little bunny, is learning how to hop and she is frustrated by her failure. Mama Rabbit points out several other baby animals around the meadow all practicing new life skills. As Daisy watches, Little Mouse, Little Badger, and Little Duckling all falter in their attempts. She realizes that she's not alone. She keeps practicing until, in the end, she succeeds. Young children will be able to relate to this amiable tale and may be encouraged by the message. The illustrations are charming; Hansen's wispy watercolors are reminiscent of Anita Jeram's artwork in Sam McBratney's Guess How Much I Love You (Candlewick, 1995). While Freedman's story will make a nice addition to larger collections, Robert Kraus's Leo the Late Bloomer (1971) and Little Louie the Baby Bloomer (1998, both HarperCollins) handle the same topic with more playfulness and real humor.
