Goodnight Baseball is a picture book that will appeal to young children, especially baseball lovers. It is written in rhymes, which works well for the most part. There are only a few lines here and there that don't quite work. The illustrations are sweet and perfect for the story. The colors that Forshay uses give off a warm, cheerful feeling that comes with happy childhood memories.
This is a wonderful book for parents to read to their children, especially sports lovers. I gave this to expectant moms-to-be when I knew the parents were fans of baseball, and they loved it. More!
