Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tiffany Erickson
Not only do the New York Yankees have the most championships of any team in baseball, they have the most championships of any team, period! This fact is enough to get most readers excited about the Yankees. Not only can fans learn about Babe Ruth, but also Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Lou Gehrig, and several other past and present Yankees that are known for game changing plays. This volume is update enough to recognize the team's latest World Series win in 2009 and their new stadium which also opened in 2009. The new stadium favors left-handed hitters—but make fans read to find out why. Aside from facts and stats, this book has fun with a limerick and picture of the field crew performing the "Y.M.C.A" during the fifth inning. Young Yankees fans will enjoy learning about the greats and fans of other teams might want to check out what they are up against so expect this easy reader to be popular. Reviewer: Tiffany Erickson
