Maryam and Daisy have visited and inspired over 2,000 kids and adults, many of whom have special needs themselves. Together they have influenced others to believe anything is possible. Daisy is living proof.
The book offers opportunities for young readers to raise questions about special needs, and increases awareness in the areas of self-acceptance, acceptance of others, and the importance of friendship. It’s also important to know that a portion of proceeds from What About Daisy? book sales goes to charities for both deafblind children and special needs pets in need of adoption, add this book to your collection.
This is one of those rare times that a children’s book has made me CRY! Not tears of sadness but rather tears of happiness. The only other books that made me react that way were I’ll Always Love You by Hans Wilhelm and Love You Forever by Robert Munsch.

Maryam is an animal activist, vegan, sits on the board for One Planet Rescue, and rescues special needs animals. She currently has Louie the three legged cat, Daisy born deaf blind, Oliver, Daisy's support dog and Lily a kitty with brain trauma.
11 years ago, before rescuing special needs was the norm, Maryam, along with husband Bruce, rescued Daisy when she was three months old. Daisy was born both blind & deaf. With no previous experience and with very few resources available on the subject, Maryam had only the power of her intuition to guide them. They worked for months trying to gain Daisy’s trust and love. After one particularly discouraging and exhausting session with Daisy, Maryam had a very vivid dream. The next morning she woke up and quickly began to write it down. Two hours later her first children's book, What about Daisy? was born.
It was at that moment Maryam realized that Daisy had opened up her heart in a most unexpected way. Maryam had been so caught up in Daisy's struggle that she had almost missed the gift right in front of her: the gift of Daisy, just as she was. Daisy hadn't just changed their lives, she had changed their destiny.
