STAN, the lad of four in Our Game, explores a storeroom of sports equipment until he hears his dad calling him. Gathering his gear and his dad’s first glove, he focuses on baseball and responds, ready to play. Our Game, a 220-word poem of rhyming couplets for ages 3-7, celebrates the intergenerational bond that baseball provides. Little boys, their fathers, and their fans will delight in this simple saga of time together for a father and his son. Delightful, detailed paintings by artist Sheryl K. Perry depict the text.
