This is a Ball

by Beck Stanton

Advertised as, “a book that drives kids CRAZY!” this picture book is silly and fun but librarian tests conclude that it will only drive kids CRAZY! if they are in 2nd grade or younger. Those Littles follow the script to a tee and the reader can simply read the words as printed in between raucous fits of laughter.

Audience members in 3rd grade or older are far too world weary to fall for any of this nonsense. They catch onto the joke quickly and the reader will have to think fast as the kids respond in unexpected ways.



Genre: humorous, Picturebook, read aloud
Subjects: imagination, silly
