MATT TAVARES says of ZACHARY'S BALL, "In this age of Astro Turf and retractable dome stadiums, I wanted to create a story that portrays baseball in a simple, timeless way — a child going to an old-time ball-park with his fielder's mitt, hoping to catch a foul ball or maybe even see his hero hit a home run."

This book shows how magical and exciting a trip to a baseball game can be. The author uses vivid details to show emotion. It is great for younger kids who enjoy baseball; it will brighten their imaginations.
What a beautiful book! This is a wonderful story about Zachary's experience catching a baseball at Fenway Park in Boston. It captures the innocence of youth, and passes it down to a new generation. The illustrations are finely detailed and quite striking. I would recommend this book for anyone, but especially for baseball lovers, and Fenway fans.
