Helpful drones are all around us – rescuing lost people, delivering supplies, surveying our fields and keeping our land healthy. Author Eileen Shibley, CEO of a company that designs and flies ‘drones for good’, has created a friendly character in Daisy the Drone that will help children 2-5 years of age to learn about our flying robot friends!

Daisy flies over fields and photographs the crops, helping farmers find the bugs that can harm the corn. With a cute story and relatable imagery – Daisy opens and shuts her ‘eyes’ to take photos – ‘Daisy Saves the Corn’ is a fun way to interest kids in an amazing new technology.
