This lovely little picture book pays tribute to a long-standing special event on Nantucket Island -- the Daffodil Parade! I bought it when I visited the island for the first time. It has inspired me to research some specialty events hosted in small town across the United States to read aloud to my students. It's a great way to "visit" different states and areas in our country. This particular book's main character is Maisie, an adorable little car that is stuck in a barn for years and then is "rescued" by a woman and taken to Nantucket. Despite not receiving a warm welcome from some of the shinier, fancier cars on the ferry ride to the island, Maisie knows she is loved by her owner and lives a happy and simple life. Everything changes at the annual Daffodil Parade, a festive time when the flowers are celebrated by locals and visitors alike As she is donned in bunches of daffodils, the fancy (and rather rude!) luxury vehicles can't undo her contentment and happiness while bringing smiles to spectators' faces. This is a cute book that is an analogy to people being unique, not needing to "earn" approval from others, and having value because you are "you."… (mer)
