If you like baseball then you will love the Book Babe and me by Dan Gutman. The book has humor, facts and history! This book is about a boy named Joe and how he and his dad travel back into 1940 to see Babe Ruth play in the world series against the Chicago Cubs. In this book we meet the main character Joe. Joe loves baseball. He loves to play it but he likes to do something more than playing baseball. He collects baseball cards. He has a lot. One day when he gets a Babe Ruth baseball card he is very interested. So Joe and his father go on the couch and hold the baseball card and end up going back in time to when the year Babe Ruth played In the world series. Joe and some other kid get into a fight over an autograph and Babe feels bad so he invites him over to his house for an autograph. Then Joe realizes that they have to go to Chicago for the world series. So their new friend Babe invites them to go. When they get to the stadium Joe and his father are separated but they end up finding each other just before the first pitch of the game. The game ends up going to the Yankees and they end up being the world series champions! Babe invites all his closest friends over to celebrate with him but Joe and his father have to go back home. So Babe gives Joe a ball to remember him with and after that Joe and his father go safely back home.
In this book there were some positives and some negatives. The negatives in this book were the making fun of babe like calling him fat. Excluding was really mean they would not let Joe play baseball because the other kids were making fun of him for collecting baseball cards. The dying though was very sad like when Lou Gerigh died. The good things about this book were the positives for example the called shots which were awesome and a great call by the Babe. The history was great and had lots of good information. Everyone made new friends like Babe and Joe turned out to be really good friends

The writing style of the author was that it was fiction. Even though it did have a lot of history in it. I enjoyed the history long ago. I would like to recommend this book to people who are baseball lovers and are very fond of it. If you like to learn more about the history of baseball and babe ruth then I suggest this book to them as well. Also if you like a nice heartwarming story to enjoy I suggest this book to them too. For example a heart warming part was when babe hit his called shots for the sick child.
Some similar novels to this book are Baseball history Jackie and me and shoeless Joe and me. Jackie and Me and Shoeless Joe and me were written by the same author who wrote Babe and me. I would really love to read the other Baseball card series book again This book is one of the bests books I have ever read. I really enjoyed reading the history of Babe Ruth and the history of the New York Yankees!
