As the title suggests, this is a collection of baseball themed poems for children. The bright and happy illustrations enhance the poetry which can be read nostalgically by old-timers and with imagination by the young. With poetry, memorable tales of last-out-of-the-game, the baseball-lost-in-the-mean-neighbor's-yard, and surprise talent abound. Its a fun book that could inspire would be jocks to become would be poets.

A great book for sharing poetry with the class; particularly reluctant boys who aren't so sure about poetry. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618719628, Hardcover)

Baseball season! For a kid who loves the sport, everything about it is important. Pitching, batting, sliding, winning, losing, Grandpa's knuckleballs, superstitious teammates, cheering spectators--even the infield dust . . . each has a place in the player's life. And all are captured here in Fehler's perceptive, exuberant poetry and Donald Wu's lively illustrations. Readers who play baseball will recognize a kindred spirit in the young narrator whose voice is heard in this book and will share his pleasure in every aspect of the game. Sports fans may even discover that they're poetry fans, too.
