Brothers at Bat is a very relatable story for children who come from extremely large families. This book is based on a true story about the Acerra family that consisted of twelve boys who had a passion for baseball. As they grew up, they developed an all brother team that traveled along the East Coast to play against other teams. In the 1940's half of the team set out to serve in the Second World War. Luckily they all returned safely. Soon the family was back on the field. The Acerra brother's made it into the Hall of Fame for being the longest-playing all-brother team ever.
Even though this book was based in the 1920s-1950s, children may still be able to make connections. When growing up in a house with multiple siblings, they find things they like to play/ bond over with each other. Older siblings teach younger siblings how to do things. Such as the older Acerra brothers taught the younger ones to play.
The main message this book gives is that, family can help you through anything. With injuries, the brothers helped each other get back on to the field and continue with baseball. During war, they supported and helped each other throughout the time spent there. When all the brothers were grown up, they then helped their children develop a love for the game. ( )
