Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr-2-5–Young readers follow the Philadelphia Phillies first baseman as he prepares for a typical game. The day-in-the-life story is accompanied by bright, full-color photographs with highlighted photo extras that add visual excitement to the quick read. The bilingual English and Spanish side-by-side text provides a balanced look at some of the player’s statistics and career highlights while focusing on daily activities like eating breakfast and playing video games. The authors promote a healthy lifestyle throughout by not only mentioning the nutritious food eaten and exercises performed by the star athlete but also by describing their purpose and importance. This book will be a great addition to children’s collections and an important one for biography reports. With an index, bibliography, and list of recommended sources for more information in both English and Spanish, this volume will be a hit.–Angelica G. Fortin, San Diego County Library, CA
