Must read 🏆

Lovely children's book with great pictures and an important message - celebrating being different. Carers and teachers check it out!

Synopsis

This is a story about Ball who desperately wants to fit in with the popular balls but feels totally alone because he doesn’t bounce like the rest of them. It doesn’t matter how hard he tries to change; he still gets laughed at or ignored. Deflated, Ball rolls far away to hide his bounce and his tears. Eventually he meets the unlikeliest of new best friends who gives him a birds-eye view of what it really means to be unique. Because of their differences, the two friends learn valuable lessons about and from one another. Will Ball stay broken hearted and hide who he really is forever, or will he embrace how important and joyful it can be to bounce his own bounce proudly? Written in a clever sing-song verse, “Ball,” which has been given five out of five stars from LitPick Reviews, GoodReads, Amazon Books and Facebook Reviews, is for children of all ages, parents, grandparents, aunts/uncles, teachers and more. It’s a story for anyone who has ever felt different, ever felt alone or that he/she couldn’t or shouldn’t bounce his/her own way proudly!

Feeling different can be be bad -

Something that may make you sad.

In this delightful tale, though,

You’ll learn it isn’t necessarily so.


Ball thinks he’s different as he sees

The other balls from up in a tree.

It takes a visit from a kind bird

To change his view of the world.


This book is colourful, bright and a treat

With a rhyming story that’s really neat.

It shows how magical it can be

To rock your own bounce where all can see.


I enjoyed reading an ARC of this book

And hope you’ll give it a good look.

It is a book to be shared with children who

May learn to celebrate being different too.
