Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Shana Morales
For young readers, the World Series Champions book series provides a basic introduction to sixteen Major League baseball teams, including the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, and St. Louis Cardinals. To true baseball fans looking for an age-appropriate read, this series falls far from the mark. Made up primarily of photos, and large font, the reading level is extremely low and those with interest in the topic will likely already know everything being covered. The Boston Red Sox title has noticeable flaws that those who know the team will be likely to notice. These flaws include having a player who has never won a world series and is no longer on the team featured on the cover, as well as perpetuating myth as fact, and the misuse of baseball terms. The New York Yankees title fails to appropriately define the word "Yankee." Certain words in all three titles are meant to stand out, their fonts and coloring are different and you can find their definitions in the glossary. Unfortunately the words chosen do not always make the most sense, and many repeat from book to book. For a basic introduction for younger readers, these titles will do, but there are better resources available if you have children and teens who are passionate about sports.

Children's Literature - Justina Engebretson
Commonly referred to as The Big Apple and known as the largest city in the United States, New York City is the home of the New York Yankees, a baseball team whose historical roster boasts names like Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, and Lou Gehrig. The Yankees are an icon in baseball and a team loved by many, the biggest exception being Boston Red Sox fans. Whether a baseball fan in general or a Yankee fan specifically, young readers, particularly boys, will enjoy this early reader, with its easy-to-read format and visually engaging photographs depicting the changing faces and eras of this great team. Readers will learn a number of fun facts, such as the team’s colors, key players, and the story behind the team’s name. An “About” page, characteristic of all books in the “World Series Champions” series, provides a list of the team’s World Series championships, the team’s first season, and the league the team belongs in. Reviewer: Justina Engebretson AGERANGE: Ages 6 up.
