I loved this book! The Yankees are my favorite team! This was an easy read, step 3. The book told a great history about Babe Ruth. He saved baseball! The illustrations went right with the story. I even had chills at the end of the book, that is how good the story was. I would recommend this book to any child, even adult that loves baseball or is interested in baseball. With the history of an amazing Legend in the baseball history, and how he was able to save baseball single handed.

Recommends it for: kids who like baseball and are learning to read independently
Son (age 6) says...
"I like the book because there is a lot of baseball and because Babe Ruth hit the first home run in Yankee Stadium and when he hit it there was a big 'WHACK!' and I read it loud."

Mom says...
This book encouraged my son to read aloud with lots and lots of expression in his voice. He was excited by the story, which presented many facts about Babe Ruth and the history of baseball that he didn't know before. Very accessible for his age (6 yrs). Score!

This is the first book that my second grade brother fell in love with. He usually has a pretty terrible view of reading, but I think this book put a dent in his "I hate reading shield". I am a pretty big sports fan and I actually learned a few things about The Babe in this one.
A nice, historical story for children about Babe Ruth, and how he not only hit home runs but he also saved the game of baseball from scandal.
