Kevin Christofora, a father and certified coach, hopes his book series, The Hometown All Stars, will inspire children to play outside more often. He teaches young people about baseball and the habits of a healthy lifestyle in the form of a fun and educational bedtime story. He has been a guest interview on ABC News regarding kids and back to school. He gives regular commentary on ESPN and also interviews around the country with stations such as NPR, 660 News, 89.7 fm. WGLS Rowan Radio, 101.5 fm KVSF fm. The Voice of SanteFe, MIX97.7 fm New York with Mark Bolger and other US radio stations. He also writes about strengthening family time with activities through his personal blog, and in publications across the country including; Fit Pro, Westchester Family, KidzEdge, Boston Parenting, Mom Blog Society, Green Baby Guide, CaliDiet Healthy Living Magazine and several other publications.
Most parents today know very little about baseball. Unlike previous generations, they don't have a lot to pass on to their children, and most kids today know more about Angry Birds than they do about America's National Pastime. It's a different world, and today's kids have lost touch with the game. Kids don't play outside much, and the sandlot's turned into a parking lot. Baseball's getting lost. The Hometown All Stars Book series, written for children ages 3-6, is on a mission to spread the idea of "Less Screen, More Green" and increase the interest in baseball with today's younger generations, while building character, teamwork skills and re-enforcing many of life's important lessons - including the most important one - TO HAVE FUN!
WHY CHOOSE THE HOMETOWN ALL STARS BOOKS?
As a coach, I see kids showing up at their first practice not knowing what home plate is. They don't even know which direction to run! The Hometown All Stars series helps children learn beginning sports skills with real life coaching techniques, combined with an educational and FUN storyline. The books encourage kids to get out of the house and get moving, giving them (and their parents) the tools to do so with confidence. Besides the obvious benefits of physical activity, The Hometown All Stars series includes important concepts like sportsmanship, leadership, playing by the rules, motivation, winning and losing, teamwork, strategy and more, helping to re-enforce many important life lessons. Give your children a head start on the field and off with The Hometown All Stars. It all starts with a bedtime story!
