Daisy: The True Story of an Amazing 3-Legged Chinchilla is a book that shows children the value of not only understanding and accepting differences, but celebrating and embracing the characteristics that make each of us unique. Daisy’s story is a heartwarming tale of love, friendship and survival.
After a tragic accident, Rosie the Chinchilla learns that even though her best friend Daisy looks different on the outside, she’s still spunky, loving and fun. Rosie learns to appreciate and admire her friend’s strength and determination as she not only survives losing a leg but learns how to run, play and do everything she always loved. With her strength and spirit, Daisy is a true hero!
"I love Daisy's story! Marney and Kim have done a wonderful job of helping children see that our differences are what make us awesome! We are all different in some way or another and Daisy is a fantastic example of how great that can be."
