Ruschka, C. (2011). A Ball for Daisy. Random House Children’s Books.
Gr. K-3. Daisy has a red ball she loves to play with. She takes it outside and sleeps with it on the couch. One day, she goes for a walk with her owner and finds some friends to play with. But as she and her friends play, her ball is popped and must be thrown away. Daisy is sad, but one day meets a new friend who has a ball to share with her.
Curriculum: This book does not have words, so it is great to talk about how pictures tell a story, and for kids to practice telling and writing stories. It would be good for prediction and inference. It can be used to discuss sharing and friendship. It could be used to talk about feelings of loss of things we love.
