Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
When boys and girls look for something interesting to read, they should consider reading Dan Gutman's book. It will entertain and inform them about baseball in the past. There is a mysterious component in which Stosh, the main character, has the ability to go back in time. While playing baseball, Stosh is hit in the head by a baseball. He is hospitalized and afterward loses interest in the game. His coach encourages him to continue to play, but Stosh hasn't decided whether or not to return to the team. Stosh uses his mysterious technique to go to New York with the intention of saving Ray Chapman's life from being hit by a baseball. He is unsuccessful in his desire to help Chapman and returns home. Doctor Wright, who treated Stosh when he was hit by a ball, asks to go with Stosh and try to save Chapman's life. Dr. Wright disguises himself and off they go to New York by Stosh's mysterious method. When they get to the hospital, Chapman is dying; however, the doctor in charge does not recognize Dr. Wright as the expert he is. The staff place Stosh and Dr. Wright in straitjackets and leave them in a sound-proof room with no method of escape. Young readers will find it interesting learning how Dr. Wright and Stosh solve this dilemma. Dan Gutman has written eight other "Baseball Card Adventures" as well as books about various sports that boys and girls will enjoy reading. Reviewer: Jennie DeGenaro

Palatine, IL, October 11, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Courage to Win by Steven Sutherland Andrew has developed a mental toughness and heart with that won't quit and will only succeed. Through his journey he will take you through total days where he learned the game and the game became him and completed him. You see a young man with courage strike out to make seven stops at second base. His teams and coaches would be saying did you see that? You can't judge a kid by his size or talent but you can judge him by his gift if you can visualize that. What you see with Andrew is not what you get, unless you know his heart. He not only loves baseball, lives baseball, but baseball completes him. ISBN#978-0-615-25662-7 (121 pages) Paperback: $19.95 Download: $18.95
