A Great Father and Daughter Bonding Experience

Mom is included in this story, but Daddy and Daughter are the main stars. Fast paced this tale covers athletics, confidence, and overcoming adversity. The pictures pack a wallop with their cartoonish style. It has the right mixture of suspense and elation.

Great young children's book about baseball

Sofie is immediately compelling to old and young. She has doubts but with family help she pushes through and does her best. This is a sweet book and great to teach young baseball enthusiasts to read.

This is a great book for a little athlete, with the perfect amount of inspiration! Many of us know how nerve-racking it can be to play a big game; this is a wonderful book to read to kids who play sports because it is so relatable!
