I have to say, I really loved this book. The authors did a fabulous job of turning this thirty-something year old mom of two, into a ten year old boy. I love the fact that the book touches on a subject near and dear to my heart, having two deaf children who wear cochlear implants, however the book doesn't focus on this. All the mischief and interaction between the characters made me feel like I was at camp. It's a book I can't wait to revisit with my son and daughter who will surely find themselves in this book when they meet the character who is just one of the guys, but doesn't hear like the other children.
'RALLY CAPS is a heartwarming book about perseverance and courage. Congratulations to Steve and Jodi for taking the challenges in their lives and turning it into a wonderful book that helps teach valuable lessons of acceptance and resilience to kids and adults alike.' Cal Ripken, Jr.
I thought this was a great book for kids, boys and girls alike. Whether or not you are into baseball or camp, you'll get a laugh out of the adventures of Jordan, the main protagonist with an injury holding him back from his greatest potential, Luca, Jordan's new international friend who has the same penchant for 'pranking' as Jordan does and Niki, proof that girls can be just as good as boys. Cutler's first novel is a fun read for kids, but at the same time teaches valuable lessons for children such as equality among the sexes, overcoming tragic incidents in life and accepting people who are different. I would highly recommend this teachers, children and parents looking for an appropriate book for their pre-teen.
