Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Karen White
Bus is an average baseball player who wants desperately to make the county All-Star team. Unfortunately, Bus finds it hard to heed his coach's advice to "forget about mistakes and to concentrate on doing your best." Bus has too much on his mind! He's nervous about the All-Star scouts seeing his errors; he feels guilty about breaking rules concerning his bike, and he's anxious about what his teammates think about his performance on the field. Bus learns, the hard way, to follow the advice and guidelines established by adults. In the end, with help and guidance from his parents, Bus begins to feel more confident and positive about his prospects in Little League baseball.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-4-Christopher continues to build stories based on good values and on conflicts between right and wrong. In this easy-to-read series entry, Bus Mercer wants to be picked for his county's All-Star team. He breaks his parents' rules, however, by riding his bicycle to the batting cage without telling them where he's going and also by traveling on the main road rather than on the bike path. Guilt about these poor decisions distracts him during an important game, but the book comes to a satisfying conclusion that readers will find realistic. Full-page, black-and-white cartoons are scattered throughout.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA
