Barbara J. Meredith's 3-Book Children's Series "Daisy & Friends" Is Purr-fect


WILLINGTON, Conn., April 16, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The first book in Barbara J. Meredith's captivating children's series about Daisy the Cat is "Daisy and Friends: How to Stay Healthy." Each of her three books point out important children's issues.

"How to Stay Healthy" teaches kids the importance of being healthy and staying safe. Daisy the Cat, along with her three dog friends, Smokie, Rocky, and H-Dee, discuss proper nutrition, as well as what to do when meeting a stranger, car safety, playing outside, and many more health subjects.

Children also need the proper amount of sleep at night, making this the purr-fect bedtime story.

The second book in the series "Daisy and Friends: Rocky's New Friend" teaches kids how to get along with others. In this story, Daisy's dog friends, including Rocky, visit the dog park, where they encounter a smaller dog who is the park bully.

When Rocky is bullied by the small dog, he knows just the tactics to use to turn the little dog from bully to friend. This important book about bullying was written by a retired pre-school teacher as a fun learning tool for other teachers to show children how to get along with others.

"Daisy and Friends Outside Our Window," the final book, is a rhyming story for toddlers and pre-kindergarteners about the changing seasons. The tale takes place from inside the house window looking out, as seen by Daisy and her three dog friends.

What do the animals see outside when the seasons change from winter to spring, and summer to fall? The story was inspired by the author's former students, who always liked to look out the windows in class.

Says the author, "During my years as a co-owner of Kids Express Learning Center & Daycare, LLC, I would often observe the toddler and Pre-K children looking out the window. I would ask the children to describe what they were looking at."
