When Daisy's beloved teacher, Miss Goldner, becomes engaged and must move to another town, Daisy decides to give her the ultimate gift: the perfect word.

Daisy is a young girl who enjoys playing outside, spending time with her best friend Emma, and words. When her teacher announces that she will be getting married and moving away, Daisy is set on finding her the perfect word as a going away present, because none of the words that she has kept in her purple and green notebook up until that point will do. Throughout the story, and because of the events that take place, Daisy grows and becomes more aware of herself, and others. She learns to believe in herself and persevere through tough situations as well as understand that she has the ability to help change others in a positive way through her own positivity.
This book is perfect for any young reader to help foster a love of reading and the English language overall. Daisy makes words fun. The author teaches its reader to never give up when going through tough situations, and that if you remain positive you can leave a positive impact on the world around you. ( )

Daisy loves words. She has lists of words in her green notebook covered in polka dots. Her teacher, Miss Goldner announces to the class that she is engaged and will be moving to a new school at the end of the school year. Daisy and her classmates all decided they wanted to buy their teacher engagement gifts. Daisy wanted her gift to be special and decided she would give her the perfect word.
Sandra Feder does an excellent job of portraying Daisy to readers in a relatable way. Readers at this age are constantly hearing words and adding different words to their personal vocabulary. This creative book will keep readers intrigued throughout the story to find out what the perfect word is going to be. For instance, Daisy thought that rainbow would be the perfect word, but ayer thinking about it a little longer she changed her mind about this word (pg. 53). Daisy continued to do this earlier in the story with many different words as well. I thought this was a great book. Daisy was portrayed in a very detailed way to readers so that they could see and feel the passion she had for words. Daisy's innocence with life itself is seen through her attitude and actions everyday as well. This is great for beginner readers as well because most of the words used are short and will not cause readers too many difficulties. I love the way that the author used different text features to differentiate between the words in the text and those specific to Daisy's word lists. The author uses italics to show and highlight the words that Daisy has written down on her many lists. This is a good strategy so then beginning readers will be able to tell which words are important to Daisy and written down in her notebook. The ending of this book was my favorite! I just love the way the author ended the book with Daisy's word lists and glossary. The page with just her perfect word on it was another great touch that was added. This allowed readers to see the words that Daisy had talked about the entire book. This was a very cute way to end the book for all of the interested readers that wanted to know what other words were on Daisy's lists.
The central message of this book is to enjoy reading and the pleasure it brings. Words can bring thrill to any reader's mind if they just allow it to. Another idea brought about in this book is in regards to relationships. Daisy struggles with different relationships in her life and how to deal with these relationships. You should be kind to everyone, even if you may not like everyone. ( )

Daisy loves words. She loves the way they sound, their many meanings, and the way there's always a word that's just right to describe whatever is happening. She also loves her teacher, who is always sparkling and cries when she gets excited and happy. "Emotional" is one of Daisy's words.

Now that Miss Goldner is getting married at the end of the school year and won't be coming back, Daisy agrees with less-than-favorite classmate Samantha that everyone should give her a present. But what to give? With her best friend Emma's help and lots of thinking, Daisy comes up with the perfect present: a perfect word.

Mitchell's cheerful black and white illustrations show a perky small girl and her happy friends and family. Daisy and Emma bike around town, visit elderly friend Mrs. Bookman, and the candy shop Sweetums. Daisy reads and picks lemons, plays with her younger sister, and avoids the overbearing Samantha. The story is a little heavy on the sweetness and light - Daisy's search for a perfect word is the only issue and even her dislike of Samantha is easily resolved by the end of the story. I'm always a little suspicious of stories where everyone is more or less perfect, especially "I adore my teacher" type stories, and schools that are portrayed sans any kind of bullying or gossip (yes, even first graders gossip and bully each other.) Also, while I certainly enjoy the idea of a world where children spend their time gardening, biking, and reading instead of staring at a screen, I don't think that world exists any longer. However, this is a fun, cheerful story to read for a child who wants something light and happy and parents who are tired of whiny, badly behaving children like Junie B. Jones will be pleased to hand their readers this title.

Verdict: There are plenty of beginning chapter books featuring girls and their relationship with school, friends, and teachers. This new title is sweet and nicely written, but doesn't particularly stand out in the crowd. If you have a limited budget, I'd recommend Princess Posey and Ivy + Bean before adding this title, but if you have a little more wiggle room, this is a good addition to your beginning chapter books.
