Digger and Daisy Go on a PicnicDigger and Daisy Go on a Picnic by Judy Young

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

easy reader

My first Digger and Daisy book was Star in a Play. I was pretty horrified by that one. Daisy is overly confident that she will remember the two word line she has in the play. Digger has no lines and is a tree. He saves the day when she freezes on stage in her role as princess and damsel-in-distress. This one is not much better.

They go on a walk. Digger smells things and asks what they are. Daisy looks and tells him. Too many aspects of the story are repeated three times for the sake of repetition. Sullivan’s illustrations are cute but the plot is uninspired.

It is possible to have quality easy readers. Unfortunately, the Digger and Daisy books I have picked up are not examples of quality easy readers.
