Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tiffany Erickson
The Dodgers have come a long way from Brooklyn to Los Angeles and they boast fans in all parts of the country. The Dodgers made baseball history when they signed Jackie Robinson in 1947, but this fact and a picture of Robinson are all that are mentioned about this important historical figure. More attention is paid to other former Dodgers who made an impact on the game: Sandy Koufax, Zack Wheat, and Oral Hershiser. Beautiful Dodger Stadium is shown with a complete view of the mountains, and a close-up of Andre Ethier at bat will encourage readers to find everything starting with the letter D. Readers should be advised that they need to be very specific and count dirt to get full credit. Young baseball fans will also learn about the Cy Young Award and its recipients when they match up the player with his correct hometown. New readers will appreciate the short text and bright photos and parents will appreciate the accurate information about a great team. Reviewer: Tiffany Erickson
