The Ball Game
To play this game, scrunch up a piece of paper into a ball and you're off. You can score goals, follow the course or hit the targets. You can throw the ball, flick it, use a rubber band to shoot it or even use the detachable piece of board to help perfect your aim.
This book completely unfolds into a game that includes ready-made holes through which readers flick or throw their paper balls. Designed for playing anywhere, this book can be stood up, laid down, or even hung up! Children can follow the story, or make up their own rules.
