My son loves this book!!! I always tell him that he is going to be a professional baseball player and when we read the part about having a baseball card with a picture of [him], he and I both were exited. This book can be used for counting to 20. As an activity you can have students keep track of the score at there desk to keep them listening. Those who play baseball in the class or watch it, can make connections to this text.

This book is a great book to read to students. It teaches young students in K-1 to count up to 20 and a variation that could be done is to use the numbers in the book to teach addition and subtraction. The story can engage students who don't really like math, because it uses a sport to help them count. This book could also be used to talk about the student's favorite sports.

This is a fun book that focuses on early readers. The pictures are colorful and the flow of words with numbers is awesome, plus it is centered on baseball! I had fun reading it, so I know this would be a 'hit' for most kids learning to read and count. .

Counting book which features examples like 1-bat, 1-ball, 2-teams, 3-strikes. Can be extended to ask students which is their favorite sport or hobby and write some numbers associated with it.
