The Runaway Pink Ball

This beautifully illustrated book The Runaway Pink Ball written for 3 to 6 year olds tells the story of a pink ball that rolls away from a little girl seeking its freedom. After numerous adventures the ball realizes it’s lonely and finds its way back to the little girl. This book is ideal for both oral reading to a young child and independent reading for beginning readers.

“This book is clearly suffused with a grandparent’s love. The story of a ball that travels toward a satisfying ending creates a peaceful island of experience for the reader. The bold, vividly hued illustrations integrate seamlessly with the brief text on each page. –Useful with primary-school age children and younger.”

“In her first children’s book, Charolotte Sear, a talented artist and wise educator, uses a combination of carefully chosen words and clear reproductions of her vibrant, luminous and expressive original art. This stunning book for 4-8 year olds tells a true to life tale about lost and found. Be sure to add this to the book shelf for your favorite child!”
