    two thumbs way up

    A great book! Universal in its stories about kids. Being in the neighborhood or being home alone for the first time. A must read.

    A great collection (not just for kids)

    I discovered Gary Soto's poetry in a public library in Nebraska. Then I read his short stories, my favorite being 'Baseball in April.' Like his poetry, these stories are beautiful in that they reveal a child's inner thought life they also show the challenges that teenagers go through. Soto takes us back to his childhood in California. The stories occur in sunny Fresno, which is in the Central Valley. The characters, dilemmas, and emotions that he evokes are so real that I often read them over saying, 'Yes, I remember feeling like that.' I mostly read adult literature but have been reading a lot in young adult literature, because I often forget what it was like to be a young boy. Soto has a gift for recalling these events and making them come alive again. I've read this collection three times and have read all of Soto's poetry. I hightly recommend 'Baseball in April,' as well as the poetry collection 'Black Hair.'
