The Ball That Did Not Like to Bounce is a terrific book for young children, grades K-2 especially. It is the story of George, a ball who is a bit different from the other balls.

Great book with great message for kids. My three sons (ages 2, 4, and 6) loved the story and the cute illustrations. It's easily becoming a favorite bedtime story at our house!

I'll let my three year old grand daughter do the review. She makes me read it a minimum of three times in a row whenever I bring it out.

8 year old Charlotte loves this book and read it cover to cover after we purchased 4 of them at the Farmers' Market. We are donating one copy to her school library and 2 more books for 7 year old twin grandkids and one for their school library. Love the art work - very colorful and kid approved! We can't wait to read the next books that follow about George!
