The bright and playful scenes mixed with the humor regarding this extremely relatable topic make this book a great addition to add to the bookshelf for both kids and parents to enjoy.
Title: Ball Written by Mary Sullivan Illustrated by Mary Sullivan Recommended Ages: 4-7 years Published: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children (April 2, 2013)
A simple & hilarious read! I must admit, I was a bit
skeptical about this book with its single word story line, but it is so
creative and fun to read.
This clever book written & illustrated by Mary Sullivan is full of expressive illustrations and well placed type. The book has just one word ‘ball’, but coupled with the expressions on the dog’s face it is easy to use your imagination to read this story with the emphasis I’m sure the dog in the story intended for you to use! This book is also a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book & a Junior Library Guild Selection.
