Now this is a good book. Not only is it about baseball, which is an automatic winner, but it teaches a good lesson. The patter from the players is so real I thought I was back at a little league game. Nice nostalgia. In this book we learn the value of working hard and learning from the best. And also to celebrate all the victories, both big and little. And play ball!
This book is a good book to show children that practice makes perfect and to never give up. In this story a boy nevers hit the baseball but when he starts getting help from a friend and practicing everyday he hits the winning pitch of the game.
