"... a tender and beautiful wordless picture book
about what it's like to lose something special -- and find a friend."

A Ball for Daisy
by Chris Raschka
Kids Wings Top Flight Book
2012 Caldecott Honor Book

Daisy loved her little red ball.

She played with it in the house.

She slept with it beside her on the couch.

She played with it at the park.

Then, something terrible happened.

Daisy was sad.

Would she ever be happy again?

How could a new friend make a difference?

A Ball for Daisy became the 2012 Caldecott Medal Winner for telling its story with emotional pictures as words.
