Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rosa Roberts
What is a perfect game? In this "Fred Bowen Sports Story" series, the main character Isaac is trying to attain the perfect game in baseball but in reality finds out the true definition of perfection on and off the baseball diamond. Throughout his quest to pitch the perfect game with no hits, no runs, and no errors, Isaac finds out there is an athlete in everyone. Along his quest for this perfect game, Isaac meets and bonds with Kevin, a participant in the Special Olympics Unified Sports Team. The engaging text with play by plays and with Isaac's innermost thoughts, trials, and lessons will resonate with any sports enthusiast. The book shows the gritty determination, compassion, and gratitude in doing what is most important in each of us. Reluctant readers will enjoy the fast pace and underlying themes in the book. This book series will be an asset to any personal or library collection. Reviewer: Rosa Roberts
