Fun Days with Jake
An animation film by LeAnn Erickson made up of drawings that look like they were done by children tells of a beautiful day—until the red ball rolls away while playing football. Exciting adventures with friends ensue, involving a skipping rope, a video camera, and Jake’s refusal to blow his stuffy nose, ending with the question of whether the ball will ever come back.
