Daisylocks needs a home that is just right. She asks Wind to help her find the perfect habitat to spread her roots, and he accepts the challenge. Wind blows Daisylocks to the plain, the mountain and the wetland. She objects to each place one by one--too cold, too hard, too wet. Daisylocks is not ready to give up! They try the humid rainforest and then the warm beach; those are not just right either. Will Wind find the perfect climate and soil for Daisylocks to place her roots and grow into a beautiful flower?

Review:

Though it's too bad Daisylocks' botanical name (Bellis perennis) is never used, it's nevertheless an inventive introduction to habitats. - Kirkus Reviews

With each stop, readers see full-page illustrations of the habitat. This is a simple story and while the illustrations are beautiful and the book could be used to introduce different habitats, Daisylocks' attitude is not particularly likeable. - Library Media Connection

Daisylocks the daisy seed desires a better place to grow, so the wind whisks her around the world. However, each new habitat provides challenges: the polar habitat is too cold, the tropical rainforest too crowded. It's no surprise that her original home is -just right!- - Horn Book Guide
