Poor Daisy loses her best toy and is devastated. A very relatable book for dog lovers! A very sweet turn at the end brings a cheery resolution. A simple story with no words, yet so heartwarming.

This book is great for the kindergarten first grade level because it has no words and the kids can make a story of their own using the illustrations. This book is about a dog who has red ball and takes it everywhere. The dog loses the ball over the fence and is very sad but then happy because his owner retrieves the ball. Then another dog has the ball and it pops the dogs stays sad for a while until his friends give him a blue ball and he is happy again. ( )

This wordless picture book follows a dog named daisy through her day with her favorite ball. She sleeps with the ball, eats with the ball, and takes it everywhere she goes. Tragically something happens to her ball and her life becomes sad. She learns that sometimes through bad experiences you can make a friend. This book is good for upper elementary students who are able to comprehend and critically think about the illustrations being displayed. ( )

Book description
Daisy has a red ball that she loves.  One day while playing in the park with a friend, the red ball accidentally popped.  Daisy is very sad.  On her next visit to the park, Daisy is greeted by her friend who has a replacement ball, and this one is blue.  Once again, Daisy is happy.  A wonderful wordless picture book that high lights the simple pleasure of playing with a red ball and how the disappointment of loss is part of everyday life.  Students can be encouraged by Daisy’s friend, who apologized for popping the red ball by replacing it with a blue one.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 037585861X, Hardcover)

Winner of the 2012 Randolph Caldecott Medal

This New York Times Bestseller and New York Times Best Illustrated Book relates a story about love and loss as only Chris Rashcka can tell it. Any child who has ever had a beloved toy break will relate to Daisy's anguish when her favorite ball is destroyed by a bigger dog. In the tradition of his nearly wordless picture book Yo! Yes?, Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka explores in pictures the joy and sadness that having a special toy can bring. Raschka's signature swirling, impressionistic illustrations and his affectionate story will particularly appeal to young dog lovers and teachers and parents who have children dealing with the loss of something special.
