Digger et Daisy vont en ville (Digger and Daisy Go to the City)
Meet Digger and Daisy! They are brother and sister. These dogs like to explore their world and see new things. Sometimes they agree with each other. Sometimes they disagree. But no matter the situation, one thing always stays the same--their love for each other. In playful, simple stories written especially for the K-1 audience, author Judy Young explores the dynamics and nuances of the sibling relationship. In Digger and Daisy Go to the City, the siblings take a trip to the big city. There Daisy gets to spend time shopping but she doesn't allow Digger to do anything, telling him he will get lost. But Digger finds a way to do what he wants.
