I purchased a used copy of Yellow Ball not too long ago, and this was the perfect week to bring it out. Although the storyline was extremely simple, Little Sis adored this book! It is also a featured book in the Before Five in a Row manual, which I also have. We did a couple activities from the manual, but I found that Little Sis was not ready for many of the other suggestions.
One cute activity the manual suggested was simply playing with a ball! So easy to overlook the simple activities, but little sis and I enjoyed rolling the ball to each other, throwing it overhead, under our legs, etc. While playing I sang the song, "This is how we roll the ball, roll the ball, roll the ball; this is how we roll the ball, when we play together... "
After a few readings of the book, Little Sis completed her own representation of Yellow Ball. Here is her Yellow Ball artwork at 34 months. She cut out the circle herself!
