Summary:This book has bright vivid pictures that go along with poems, that are very neat in some ways then others. This book has poems about baseball, and paintings.
Classroom: This was a cute book I would let my class look at this book and see what they think.

My favorite thing about this book is the illustrations. Although I do not think the illustrations aren't incredibly well done, I enjoy the fact that they are painted and are imperfect. This book is an informational text about baseball, which is perfect for baseball season and baseball fanatics found within your classroom. The rhyming words are perfect for younger elementary students to read, pronounce, and understand. Readers gain a better understanding of the sport of baseball after reading this text. ( )

This book is great for children who are into baseball! There's a mean armed picture and a daisy picking fielder. Great for ages 3 and up! ( )

I thought this book was really awesome. It gives headings in the book and gives poems that have to do with baseball. The poems had to do with positions and baseball terms like pitcher and slugger.
