Tell Your Own Story,
This review is from: A Ball for Daisy (Caldecott Medal - Winner Title(s)) (Hardcover)
I have never come across a wordless children's board book before. What a fantastic idea. A picture book that allows a child to write their own story and input their own feelings and experiences.
2012 Caldecott Medalist Chris Rachka has painted the pictures of a dog and a ball. That sounds simples, but what words cannot tell pictures do and you see Daisy with the joy of her life a simple ball and what happens when that joy is taken,
That is not where the story ends. There are good humans in Daisy's life and with the good comes a new joy.
I loved this book and what it offers, the depth and conversation from this seemingly simple story will expand as you young one experiences the world around them and can add to Daisy's story and you will both see the world through Daisy in different ways.
Keep this book on your shelf and bring it out from time to time to see how Daisy's world changes through your child's eyes.

This review is fascinating. It is 32 pages of a book without words but draws the reader in.....I want it. LOL You are making me have empty nest syndrome wanting to read all these books with children again.

If you ever go through a dry spell with books, but up a child's boardbook. They are wonderfu.

Oh, there is a series of wordless books about Carl the Dog. We LOVED those books. My wee one would make up the BEST stories. FUN!
