Daisy is excited to be a big sister. She gives her little brother, Miles, lots of toys. Miles loves playing with the toys, being tickled by Dad, and laughing at Mom’s silly faces. He smiles and plays with everyone except Daisy. What can Daisy do to get a smile too?

"Oh my goodness this is a cute story! It's perfect for parents when bringing a new baby into the house or when the older child wants to play with the younger child.  I love how the story includes a mixed race family and how the older sister tries so hard to make her brother laugh. I think children and parents will appreciate the humor in the story and how sweet the older sister is in trying to play with her baby brother. Loved it!"  --King First Baptist Child Development Center

"Very easy read and for young children to understand. Shows a child learning and adapting which is very powerful." - Tallmadge city schools

"Daisy wants very much for her baby brother to be a playmate, but doesn't quite understand that babies operate a bit differently. With good intentions and sweet support from her parents she tries many, many ways to get baby Miles to smile, only to finally succeed, in an inauspicious way! This is a nice book about caring, loving siblings that young kids will easily relate to. There are lots of expressive sounds an actions that can be imitated to keep readers engaged." - BookWorks
