    Excellent Teaching Tool

    I purchased this book to use in the first week of class with my students to let them know about some of my interests. Cubs being one of my favorite things. We used this book as the starting point for a book about our school and the kids had a blast coming up with their own phrases. The even used the format for each letter. I was so impressed!

    Aweome book

    I saw this book at Books-A-Million and was really pleased with it. They had a book called For Love of the Yankees and I read that as well. I think they should write books like For Love of the Red Sox as well.
