The story is about a boy who makes a ball out of a ball of string so he has something to play soccer with. He "kicks it and kicks it and he kick, kick, kicks it" until the ball unravells. He imagines it is lost to him and goes searching for it. Then discovers it again after "roll, roll, rolling" it back up.
The best things about this book are the delightfully easy language and the lovely simple illustrations. My son asks for me to read it "again" every time. I don't mind when it's enjoyable for me, too.
