Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - John D. Orsborn
Beginning in 1901 as the Washington Senators, the Minnesota Twins moved to Minnesota in 1967. Early in their history they were a good team, winning the World Series in 1924 and having very good seasons in 1925 and 1933. However, they began to lose, getting to the point where their owner decided they needed to move. While their home is in Minneapolis, they are called the Minnesota Twins, representing the state name and the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. As with their history as the Senators, the Twins have risen and fallen as a team. In 1987 after struggling with good teams they finally won another World Series. Everyone thought they had it made when they won again in 1991. What happened next will surprise many readers. However, one must read this great book written by author Mark Stewart. Often, sports books for younger readers leave out the off-the-field history of sports teams. Mark Stewart recognizes the important influence of all of a team's history, making this a great read for younger and older readers alike. As with other books in the "Team Spirit" series, the author focuses on the team but includes general information about the sport being discussed. A good addition to any public or school library.
