This is a follow up book to Chris Raschka’s Caldecott Medal winner A Ball for Daisy. The nearly wordless picture book begins with Daisy and her friend enjoying a game of fetch with Daisy’s blue ball. Unfortunately, Daisy becomes distracted by a squirrel in the woods and ends up lost. Not to worry, though -the story ends happily with hugs as Daisy and her friend are reunited.
You and your child will have great fun following along as the story unfolds through the illustrations. I love picture books without words- they give young readers the opportunity to tell the story as they follow the pictures. In this case, the emotions of Daisy and her friend are easy to see as the story unfolds, and make for great storytelling opportunities. Both Raschka’s color choices and the adorable characters make these watercolor illustrations absolutely enchanting. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did. Happy reading!
