Here Comes the Strikeout (I Can Read Picture Book Series)by Leonard Kessler
Everybody loves to play baseball, especially Bobby. Bobby can run bases fast. He can slide and catch the ball. But one thing he just cannot do is hit the ball. “Twenty-one times at bat, twenty-one strike outs,” Bobby says glumly. Not knowing what to do, he finally asks his friend Willie for help.

The title of the book is "Here Comes the Strikeout." The genre of this book is realistic-fiction. The book is about a boy named Bobby who keeps missing the ball in a game called baseball. I enjoyed the part when Bobby managed to hit the ball. There is nothing I didn't enjoy about the book. I would recommend the book because it teaches us to keep on trying to learn doing things.

If you like baseball you would like the book, Here Comes the Strikeout by Leonard Kessler. It is about a boy who doesn't know how to hit a home run. He keeps practicing and practicing until he hits the ball. I like the because not the boy can hit a home run and play baseball. You should check it out at your local library today!
