I liked this book for many reasons. First, the book opened with a page that was titled, “Word hunt.” These words would be seen throughout the book and pictures also accompanied them. This could make it easier for someone to follow if they have no background knowledge about baseball. Some of the terms included bases, batter, fans, fly ball, etc.
Second, I really liked the format of this book. Each page showed different aspects of a baseball game. For example, the first page said, “Play ball!” The author explained that an umpire is the person who starts off the baseball game. Throughout the book, the author did this with the pitcher, batter, and catcher as well. Other positions were also talked about. On those pages, the author described the roles and responsibilities of each person and what would happen if they did not complete or read that responsibility.
This book is a great resource for young children who are interested in baseball or anyone who wants to get to know a little more about the sport. The terms are very easy to follow. ( )
