Daisy and Friends Outside Our Window

Daisy and Friends Outside Our Window is a rhyming story for toddlers and pre-kindergarteners about the changing seasons. It’s written from inside the house window looking out, as seen by Daisy the cat, and her three dog friends, Smokie, Rocky, and H-Dee.

What do the friends see, when the colorful seasons change from winter to spring, and summer to fall?

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.”

A portion of the proceeds from the Daisy and Friends book series benefits three charities: Kitty Angels, a no-kill cat shelter in Coventry, Connecticut; Protectors of Animals, a no-kill animal shelter and rescue, and Bandit’s Place, Inc., a pet rescue and adoption center, both in East Hartford, Connecticut.

This is the third book in the series. Her next book is on transportation and is titled Daisy and Friends Waiting for the School Bus.

Barbara J. Meredith retired from Kids Express Learning Center & Daycare, LLC in 2013. She was co-owner, director, and head teacher for 14 years. Her first book in the series was Daisy and Friends: How to Stay Healthy. “The animals in this book are my actual pets. The inspiration for the books came from over 20 years as a pre-school teacher observing children’s behaviors.”
