A wordless picture book with charming illustrations that invites children to imagine their own details and has a quality message about replacing things you've broken.

Suitable for ages 3 to 7. ( )

A great picture book for children. It is a cute and engaging book that children can make their own story with since it is wordless. I enjoyed reading the happiness of a cute pup and her ball.

This is a wordless picture book about a dog named Daisy and her favorite red ball. Throughout the book, it shows the multiple activities that Daisy does with her ball. Although this book has no words, I think this would be perfect for students who are intimidated by reading. This book would also be great for a lesson that focuses on the student's interpretation of context clues, because the students can write their own perspectives on what's happening. ( )

Cute wordless picture book. The dog loved its ball and once it popped she was sad but when she got a new one she was happy again. Super cute.

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.
