Children all around the world will appreciate this wordless picture book. A Ball for Daisy is a very delightful book for children to read repeatedly. I could see the children noticing something different every time they pick up this book. The sequential illustrations and the creative lines and color help readers interpret Daisy’s emotions.

I brought this home for my 2 and 4 year old to read and it was a hit! They asked me to tell the story every night, and we enjoyed guessing how the characters felt and what they might be thinking or saying. Because there were no words, my 4 year old was more confident in "reading" it to herself or her brother (if she knows there are words, she feels like she can't do it). I highly recommend!

Good book if someone has a great imagination. The story could unfold differently, if one chooses, each time a person reads it.

I would recommend this book to parents who want their children to use their imagination in order to create a story that makes sense. It is a good piece of literature because it is easy to understand what is going on throughout the book.
A child could be entertained by having them look over all of the illustrations and go back to tell the actual story. Depending upon how creative the child is, he/she could add dialogue as well. This is a great book for younger children and parents so that children are used to telling stories and using their imaginations.
