Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I purchased Baseball Boy for my 14 month old son who has truly enjoyed it. He loves the illustrations and the flow of the story. He listens very carefully every time we read it together and especially likes singing "Take me out the the ball game". Kelly Roberts, thank you for giving parents such an inspiring story. My son will grow up with Baseball Boy. It's a classic!
