Something incredible about wordless picture books is that no matter what language the title is printed in, the story can be enjoyed by all. We found a Chinese version at our local library book sale, and it quickly became one of my daughter's favorite books. The art style isn't my favorite, but it does not detract from the emotions of seeing Daisy's beloved ball pop, and then the joy of receiving a new ball from her fellow dog friend. ( )

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.
