2012: A Ball for Daisy

Chris Raschka

This New York Times Bestseller and New York Times Best Illustrated Book tells a love and loss story as only Chris Rashcka can. Daisy’s anguish when a larger dog destroys her favorite ball will be understood by any child who has ever had a beloved toy break. Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka explores the joy and sadness that having a special toy can bring in pictures, following in the footsteps of his nearly wordless picture book Yo! Yes? Raschka’s signature swirling, impressionistic illustrations, as well as his affectionate story, will appeal especially to young dog lovers, teachers, and parents who have children who are grieving the loss of something special.
