My daughter thinks this is a very funny story, and it has already become a firm favourite. She loves to see the Mum desperately trying to get Daisy to eat those peas. We both laugh at the outrageuos bribes, and she can't wait to get to the page where Mum has her comeuppance! She loves to "read" this book to herself, following the story from the pictures which are fun and easy to follow.
What a gem of a book for children - you''ll love to read it to your child, and it will bring a smile to your face as well.
Basically, situations similar to those in this book can be found in every family, but the author and illustrator make them very appealing. If we follow the story page by page, we can see Daisy's mother getting upset and disconcerted. In order to persuade Daisy to eat her peas, her mother abandons her principles as much as she can. She even offers her a variety of bribes to make her change her mind. Unfortunately, Daisy always refuses to comply. As far as the text is concerned, it is not easy for a little girl to eat something which she really dislikes. I believe that most children if they are bribed, will give up their original ideas and accept the bribe, but Daisy doesn't do that. She has a very strong character and gives a good example for children. In addition to the author's humorous writing, the illustrator's vivid drawings deserve appreciation as well. Without these dazzling and colorful illustrations, this book wouldn't be so impressive.
Therefore, I strongly recommend this book to every young reader. It is worth owning this book to remind one of a pleasant reading experience.
A great book.
If this sounds like you, then you must read it and realise how out of proportion mealtimes can get.
My girls (3 and 5) laugh every time and when confronted by a plate of healthy veg ask 'If I eat my carrots, will you buy me a new fluffy pencil case?' - read it and find out why!
Good ending too.
Daisy won't eat her peas... No matter what her mum promises her despairingly. Is there any way to make her eat her hated peas? My son xouksnt rally understand why she wouldn't do as she was told but he did find it funny that she kept saying 'no', even when offered a chocolate factory! And as the promises grow bigger, he found it more and more funny.
The ending is brilliant, very funny again, and a wonderful depiction of a warm parent-child relationship.
Daisy is great, we love the whole picture book series, and so will other boys AMS girls aged 3-6. And their parents!
Now we read together with gusto!
I DON'T LIKE PEAS!
In this book Mum is trying to bribe Daisy into eating her peas. The response to every bribe is the same: "'I don't like peas', said Daisy." The repetition of this line is highly entertaining for young children, and also gets them reading these words without even realising they're learning!
The other thing my daughter likes to do is count up the bribes - for example Daisy is tempted by 48 puddings and 72 chocolate factories, all neatly drawn in rows. So again, learning is fun. She is also enthralled by the thought of the things Daisy's mother promises her - like never having to clean her teeth or take a bath, a space rocket, a toy shop, real live zoo animals ... it's great fodder for little imaginations.
I can't recommend this book highly enough - it will give you and your child a great story to enjoy together and it always leads to laughs and cuddles!
