A special order item has limited availability and the seller may source this title from another supplier. Biblio is a marketplace for book collectors comprised of thousands of independent, professional booksellers, located all over the world, who list their books for sale online so that customers like you can find them!
Inventory on Biblio is continually updated, but because much of our booksellers' inventory is uncommon or even one-of-a-kind, stock-outs do happen from time to time. Since 2005, Biblio has donated over $1 million to fund literacy and educational projects that benefit children in impoverished communities of South America. Every time you purchase a book on Biblio, you are supporting our mission of improving literacy and education at home and abroad. The internet can be such a wonderful place sometimes (as long as Congress doesn’t get its hands on it). Revealed (presumably) for the first time last July in the forums, keen-eyed fans of the series can spot several lesser-known (but equally and fondly remembered) supporting characters in addition to a few that never actually made it on the show.

TweetAll children can relate to the sinking feeling of loss that comes around when you lose a toy that you love. Without any words, we are introduced to Daisy, a shaggy adorable pup who has a red ball that she obviously absolutely adores.
All thick squiggly lines and sweet doggy expressions, Chris Raschka did a beautiful job with depicting Daisy. In this event, there may be a slight delay in shipping and possible variation in description.

It holds all sorts of treasures for nostalgia-driven fanatics like myself who see a search bar as nothing more than a fancy version of One-Eyed Willie’s treasure map from The Goonies.

She plays constantly with the ball, rolling over and tossing it in the air, throwing it onto the couch and then snuggling up beside it to take a nap, and of course, dragging it along with her when her owner takes her for a walk.
The splashes and blending of watercolor to create the whimsical backgrounds for each page drive home the depth of emotion that Daisy feels, getting dark and stormy colored when she’s upset, lighter and brighter when she’s happy. The illustrations are without a doubt beautiful, unique, and captivating, and you can’t help but fall in love with the book.

In A Ball For Daisy, Author Chris Raschka uses lovely illustrations created with ink, watercolor, and gouache to wordlessly tell the story of what it’s like to lose something that means a lot to you-and gain something that’s even better. But much to Daisy’s chagrin, another dog at the park seems to enjoy her ball too, and without much concept of sharing, runs off with it. Obviously for a wordless picture book, the illustrations need to be outstanding to properly convey the emotion in the story, and Raschka’s are. It’s accuracy in portraying depth of emotion, and a scenario children can closely relate too is superb.
If someone had told 10-year-old me that seeing something like this would be possible I probably would have guffawed and continued eating my Mr. He used a combination of ink, watercolor, and gouache to portray his protagonist and her story.
There was some fuss made over it though that I think was more adults making a big deal out of pictures then children.

Sturdy, tight, uncreased, clean and unmarked (except for author's inscription on inside front cover). Willpower features personal stories from entrepreneurs, executives, parents and children who have managed to do just that. She noses it, nudges it, tries to bring it back to life by playing with it, but in the end her owner simply tosses it in the trash. Gouache (if you’re wondering as I was when I first heard it) is essentially a medium that is the same as watercolor, but modified to be opaque. To receive a Caldecott, one of the criteria states that a book must display understanding of a child’s abilities, understandings, and appreciations, and I felt that some of the appreciation for the artwork was more on the adult end of things.
The characters range from Victorian explorers to modern homemakers, from college students pulling all nighters to entertainers. The ratio of pigment to water is much, much higher than in watercolor, and a white pigment (chalk) is added, making it heavier. There were times where a young child might be confused, and while they might enjoy the pictures, they don’t necessarily know the value of the artwork as adults do. This style plays a huge part in how Daisy’s feelings are expressed because it easier to reflect emotions with than just watercolor. At this point, we all know how miserable Daisy is feeling, she sulks even while her owner tenderly comforts her with gentle pets, and takes her on another walk to the park.
Children who read this book will catch the emotions portrayed, and be able to relate deeply to this wonderfully touching book without any words.
