Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth D. Schafer
Head out to the ball field with this book that simply explains the key elements of playing baseball. Friendship and sportsmanship are emphasized as children and adult coaches gather at both baseball parks and grassy fields to enjoy this sport. Girls and boys are shown playing together. Strong verbs reinforce the active nature of baseball as readers learn about throwing, hitting, running, and catching. Basic playing strategies are mentioned. The text explains required equipment, revealing that bats are usually wooden or metal but not telling what materials are used to make baseballs sturdy enough to withstand being hit hard. An aerial photograph of a large ballpark shows field design and positioning of bases. The safety section emphasizes players wearing batting helmets and gloves to protect their heads and hands but does not show other protective equipment, particularly for catchers. Definitions in the glossary incorporate some baseball rules. A brief bibliography suggests age-appropriate books. Recommended for young readers interested in participating on tee-ball, Little League, school, or community teams specifically for beginning players. Supplement this text with Brad Herzog's picture book, H is for Home Run: A Baseball Alphabet (2004), and read-aloud poems, such as "Casey at the Bat" and "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" from the anthology, At The Crack of the Bat (1992), compiled by Lillian Morrison. Part of the "Pebble Plus" series.
