Reviews
Students connect! –Kerry
Students easily connect and are therefore engaged in this funny story, full of personalities and questions. Every one of my students loved the story and took something different away after reading! Provides a number of writing prompts and is a favorite of boys and girls alike! (Posted on 1/27/2014)
Fun book! –Barbara N.
When Bella and Rosie say that Jack and Daisy are too little to hunt squirrels, the two intrepid terriers set out to prove them wrong! Hilariously, neither even know what a squirrel is!
My First grade students love this book because it deals with a problem they face, being "too little." Jack and Daisy are characters that they relate to and love. Jack and Daisy books are always being read! (Posted on 1/6/2014)
Nobody every answered my question! –Helen C
Jack has a lot in common with first graders. First graders are told that they are too little. Nobody listens to them and answers all their questions, either. Well--what is a squirrel, anyway? What would Jack do if he did catch one? This adventure helps Jack discover he can do difficult things by taking one step at a time. But he never does learn what a squirrel is! What a wonderful prompt this book can be to writing a story. (Posted on 1/25/2012)
Jack and Daisy Series –Jennifer
My students LOVE the different characters in the Pioneer Valley books, including the Jack and Daisy series. My student Luka is very motivated by reading series like the Jack and Daisy, Bella and Rosie, and Jasper stories. He takes all of the Jack and Daisy books from his browsing box home together. He belly laughs every time Jack asks, "What's a squirrel?" Books that are motivating and have a little humor in them help engage my struggling readers. They WANT to read! (Posted on 1/25/2012)
Nice to pair with non-fiction –Deb
This is a sweet book which opens the door to non-fiction reading about squirrels. Cute plot which shows the determination of the younger "kids" and their success through practice and hard work.. (Posted on 1/23/2012)
Jack - the role model –Jacqueline
My ELL students know what it's like for Jack to have to keep asking, "What's a squirrel?" and what it is like to run off "on a squirrel hunt" without really knowing what they're up to. They enjoy the humor and can connect with the funny situations and trouble that Jack and Daisy keep getting themselves in and out of. My kids realize it's okay to ask questions and you don't have to pretend you know something when you don't. (Posted on 1/16/2012)
Great books for a dog lover! –Patty
This series is perfect for any child who loves dogs!! The love of reading was instilled in one of my students when he began reading the Jack and Daisy series. He asks to take these books home every nightI They have literally been read every night since I introduced them! He absolutely adores this book and all of the books in the Jack and Daisy series!

Jack and the Bossy Girls –Beth V.
Poor Jack! Bella and Rosie treat him and Daisy as such insignificant creatures, and Daisy (who usually hangs with him) won't even slow down to explain what a squirrel is.

The "too little" theme frequented in typically lower level reading recovery books, is revisited here, with a new spin. Jack actually tries to admit that he is too little and needs help when he falls down a hill. Luckily, Daisy bosses him further and won't hear of them being referred to any more as being too little and orders him up the hill!

Such clever character development in this new series, with such sassy ladies! (Posted on 1/10/2012)
Great books! –Vicky
My first and second graders love the Jack and Daisy Books; they think it's a riot when jack keeps on asking "But what is a squirrel?" in Hunting Squirrels. (Posted on 1/10/2012)
