Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - John D. Orsborn
Die-hard Cubs fans remember all the moments in their team's history when they had the opportunity to go to the World Series of baseball or win a pennant. As if family, Cubs fans feel the emotion of the players personally when the Chicago Cubs win or lose. It is hard to explain to the average sports fan how people feel about the Cubs and why they hold such a special place in our baseball history. Author Mark Stewart, the master of the nonfiction book, allows younger readers into the storied history and notoriety of this famed ball club. He ties together the Cubs' amazing history and facts with well-written flair. Photographs and illustrations enhance the information within the pages of this book. A part of the "Team Spirit" series, Mr. Stewart's book illustrates the series' purpose of illustrating, "...that deep passion shared by the players and fans when they wear the same colors, watch the same scoreboard and cheer the same triumphs." Included are numerous sections of facts and player quotes, as well as sections for further exploration. What an amazing book for that young sports fan.

I purchased this thinking it was going to be a huge book with lots of information in it. I bought it for my In-Laws Christmas Present. It's approx. 50 pages with very large print and some kiddy like pictures in it. This book would be perfect for an elemtery school child. Not for adults. The fact that it says "library edition" is very dissappointing.
