THE BOUNC­ING BALL

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - BOOKS - Dani Colvin

Writ­ten by Deb­o­rah Kelly, il­lus­trated by Ge­or­gia Perry, Ran­dom House, hard cover, $ 19.95. HIS beau­ti­fully con­ceived book is de­signed to stim­u­late chil­dren’s imag­i­na­tions and show them a lit­tle of the world around them as they fol­low the jour­ney of a bounc­ing ball. When a lit­tle boy finds the ball, he plays with it un­til it rolls down the street, be­tween two cars, into a gut­ter, down a drain, and on to other new and in­ter­est­ing des­ti­na­tions, and into the hands of other chil­dren.

With its easy- to- han­dle size, sim­ple text with oc­ca­sional re­peated phrases, and vivid il­lus­tra­tions fea­tur­ing flow­ers, cars, dogs, build­ings, trees, hands and feet, this book is likely to ap­peal to very young read­ers shar­ing with a grown- up.
