When her parents try to convey to Daisy the excitement of moving and going to a new school, all she can think about is a series of worries in the form of “what ifs.” What if she doesn’t like the new house? What if her cat doesn’t take to the place? What if she has no luck in making friends? When Daisy expresses her worries to her grandfather, he gives her a different perspective based on optimism and looking on the bright side of things.
