    Yankees RULE!!!!!!!!!!

    This book serves its purpose. Though, since I am a school newspaper esitor and writer, Matt Christopher has written a clever book about the Yankees an their history. He has written two other books, also about sports, On the Court With Venus and Serena Williams and Yao Ming. Matt has the taste in his books, I reccomend them to 7-8 year olds.

    It's OK

    The book it's self is OK but I am gonna list some minor problems.
    1. It only has like 75 pages so savor it.
    2. It says that the babe did'nt do the called shot but I think he did but thats not the problem, the problem is that he is TRYING to get you to belive that it did'nt happen, and that just isn't right.
    3. it's kind of offensive since he's kinda saying that the Yankees are the best team in baseball I mean you can go for them but you don't have to rub it in our faces.
    4. Why not write a book about another team? I mean Matt Cristopher is pretty much has a huge obsession with the Yankees.
