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 on a Picnic, Digger and Daisy walk to the park for a picnic. On the way there Digger's keen sense of smell helps him explore his surroundings. But will his nose lead him into trouble?

Author Bio

Judy Young remembers showing her grandmother a poem she had written when she was about ten years old, and she has been in love with writing ever since. One of her most cherished honors as a writer was attending performances in which her book, R is for Rhyme, A Poetry Alphabet, was interpreted and choreographed by the Tanner Creative Dance Program and Children's Dance Theatre at the University of Utah for their 58th Annual Performance. In addition to writing, Judy specializes in school visits and writing workshops for students and is a frequent speaker for professional educational organizations. With twenty years experience in the public schools, Judy's presentations are directly related to school curriculum. Judy resides near Springfield, MO, with her artist husband, Ross. They have two grown children and several dogs. In her spare time, Judy enjoys hiking, fishing and gallivanting around the country in "Arlo," the Young's traveling studio.

Dana Sullivan grew up in Southern California drawing on every piece of paper he could find. He now teaches picture book and graphic novel classes near Seattle, where he lives with his wife and two dogs.
