Genre: Wordless Book Personal Reflection: I really enjoyed the A ball for Daisy book illustrations of this book. The minimalistic plot allows the reader to fully focus on Daisy's emotions from the title page where Daisy is given her new red ball to the climax when the ball is popped and then the story's resolution where she is given a new blue ball by a friend in the park. Most helpful negative review Average rating:1out of5stars, based onreviews Summary: This story is Children could also create a Daisy related craft, such as a paper bag puppet of Daisy complete with a red or blue construction paper ball, of course! However, in other cultures, dogs would not be invited into the house. Next, ask each group to choose two favorites from the remaining titles; the group should prepare a clearly articulated rationale for why the illustrations are worthy of being recognized with the Caldecott Medal.

At the beginning of the story, the first few pages show Daisy affectionately playing and sleeping with her red ball. They are everywhere around us. In an interview, Raschka said the book was inspired by his son at age 4, who was devastated when his yellow ball broke during a quarrel with a neighbor. Invite your students to investigate what science tells us about animal emotions. Invite your students to do some first hand research into dog behaviors. As the story continues, you can see and feel all the emotions that Daisy is feeling as she loses the ball to another dog and watches it pop at the park.

Daisy is given a blue ball in the park showing it is new and different toy, but at the book's end Daisy is sleeping with her new blue ball on the couch conveying to readers she loves it just as much as the red ball and all is well. Mock Caldecott. Her sadness from losing her ball is shown by shifting the color to a dark purple that follows Daisy home as she mourns for her ball. With help from a hot chef, a friendly mailman, and a little white dog, Dora and Evie must balance the scales to save their bottom line. I love dogs and I loved this book.
