Combining a love of baseball with a sense of paying it forward with kindness, this book was destined to become one of my favorite all-time children's stories. Every school day, I start and end our days with the simple announcment to my students and staff: "Be good to each other." My favorite all-time quote comes from Jimmy Stewart from the film Harvey. Stewart's character recalls how his mom used to stress to him, "In this world, Elwood, you can be oh so smart or oh so pleasant. For years, I was smart; I recommend pleasant." This book captures the essence of my favorite quotes and urges readers to be good to others. If you simply purchase this book, you will be paying it forward since $3 will go to charities. Buy it and PLAY it forward!

This is a truly heart warming book of unselfishness and simple, pure -generosity. In even the simplest of life's challenges, no gift should go unnoticed. A truly classic expression of what selfless sharing and the joy it gives to the giver and the receiver is all about. A MUST READ (and re-read) for children and adults alike! This book is positively going to be enjoyed for many years to come.
Enchantment is a dynamic all its own - and this book - for obvious reasons, enchants. Buy it, neither your kids or you will ever forget "A Glove of Their own".
Thank you for such a truly amazing book!

Co-authored by Debbie Moldovan, Keri Conkling and Lisa Funari-Willever and illustrated by Lauren Lambiase, "A Glove of Their Own" is more than a children's picturebook; it's part of a movement to help raise awareness, spread the joy of playing a game for its own sake, and raise funds and equipment for children in sports. The rhyming story follows a young boy on a makeshift baseball team with boys and girls, as he puts his all into swinging at the baseball, trying to reach home plate, and playing the field as short stop even though he can't yet afford a glove of his own. Then an old man whose kids are grown helps by donating their old sports equipment. "'You kids keep on playing, / but remember this game / is more than a score,' / said the man with no name." The last few pages include additional information on sports charities like "Good Sports", "Pitch in for Baseball", and "Sports Gift", followed by a handful of short (three paragraphs or less) stories by guest young authors. A lovely storybook for budding baseball fans, especially recommended for its reminder that baseball is about more than just winning or losing.

It is with great sincerity that I recommend this book. It has it all. This book offers nostaglia for those young at heart individuals who can remember playing baseball in the old abandoned field to the simple joy of baseball for those young enough to play today. Parents will enjoy reading it to their children as well as listening to their children read it to them. Not only is the storyline wonderful, it's "play it forward" message is inspiring. Helping one another is certainly something we need to be reminded of in these trying times.

Here is a book that relates such foundational values as kindness and self-sacrifice with the game that is America's Pastime, baseball. Simple, yet impacting, its poetry is further measured with colorful artwork, all conveying a timeless message to both adults and youth. This is a story that will never grow old. And so, the book is a treasure that can be handed down through the generations from parents and grandparents to children and grandchildren. "A Glove of Their Own" is, indeed, a big-hearted gift! I HIGHLY recommend it.

A Glove of Their Own is a beautifully written book about children, their love for baseball and the concept of paying it forward. We so easily forget that simple kindness to others can change the path of someone's life. Whether it is simple praise or helping someone out of a jam, kindness and generousity have an impact on our hearts. So, pay it forward and buy your loved one this amazing book of love.

This book is a rare find. While the story is very uplifting and relates to people of all ages, the illustrations in this book are a real treasure!

When you see bases made of sticks and the tear running down the old man's face, you know this is a true story about many good people in our world.

Definitely a book that will be valued for many years.
