2012 Caldecott Winner First Line–(I have no words for this…)

My 20-month-old daughter loves anything round that bounces. Classic, right? 

For dynamic picture book stories, you’d think a bouncing ball is an old, worn out idea–even a child and a ball, or in the case of A Ball for Daisy by Chris Raschka, a dog and a ball.

For PiBoIdMo 2013, there is no such thing as an worn out idea, and a wordless one at that! (Thus the “I have no words for this” title…) The Caldecott Award winners, like the 2012 Winner, A Ball for Daisy, prove this. 

That’s why today’s idea prompt is simply a ball. What did you do with it when you were a child? What did you wish you could do with it, bounce to the moon?
