This wonderfully illustrated version of the famous 1888 poem "Casey At the Bat" by Ernest L. Thayer is a Caldecott Honor Book. It is the poem of a baseball game gone badly and the hope placed in Casey, though unfortunately, Casey strikes out. This is a great way to teach children about a very important poem and a useful tool for a unit on poetry, particularly for getting students who might like sports better than books interested in poetry. The illustrations are very historical and the entire book is full of artifacts and photographs and designed to look like a newspaper article, which is very cool and creative. ( )
