“Swan Pond" book arrived ... I love it! It follows the line of a Shel Silverstein book I read to the kids of which they loved. But you made a big twist at the end. I love the just pictures portion that really engages the kids more ... Read it to three kids while in the bathtub. By the end of the book all three of them were on the edge and shouting out what was going on in the pictures. It was a lot of fun. Great job! And the art work is amazing!!!” — Betty Spellman
"Swan Pond" just 'quacked' me up! It's a fun story with a great message. The colorful, hysterical illustrations are eye-catching. Both Daffodil books are now my go-to gifts for baby showers and children's birthdays." - Rose Z. Aglieco.
“My 2 year old daughter and I read "Slippery Soap!" at least twice a day and we just purchased "Swan Pond" at the Pawling farmers market! Carol and Doris are the nicest and my daughter loves them!" - Courtney M.
“Slippery Soap!" is delightful! The rhyming is well done and the illustrations are whimsical and so much fun. It's such an upbeat book and I love how the whole family (including the dog!) is involved in the soap escapade. … You’ve thought of everything with the illustrations— I love looking at each member of the family for you've infused certain looks and poses for each one. I love how it is printed and made in America, too. The paperback cover is lightweight but very sturdy for kids and the pages and colors look great! … What a book to bring giggles to kids! I'm looking forward to your next one! - Patricia C.
John A. told us that whenever he finishes the book, his 3-year old daughter insists on going back to the page with the sister and her bubbly shoes. She points to the shoes and says, "What happened to shoes?" ... Then, a month later he said that the other day they sat down to read it and she stopped him before he even started, telling him, "I read to you, Daddy." Then she proceeded to "read" the whole story to him! He was shocked she knew (remembered?) all the words!
