If you've got a young baseball fan at home consider reading this new book together! My First Book of Baseball
by Beth Bugler
My son and I have read and reread this book all about the basics of baseball. Each page has simple text to explain how the game is played along with photos of real professional players in the midst of real games. The artwork combines these player pictures with funny captions like "I can't believe I forgot my hat.". There's also a little cartoon player who helps move the book along with his own silly comments.
Ask your librarian if you need more baseball books to satisfy your little sports fan. We've got plenty of books about other sports too!
