Perfect for t-ball players and the like,
This review is from: Baseball Hour (Hardcover)
I saw this at the library and couldn't put it down. My oldest boy plays coach-pitched baseball and when he saw the cover of this book it caught his eye too. So I thumbed through it and took it home (can't read books at the library with 3 young kids.)
When we finally got around to reading it that night I couldn't get over how beautiful the illustrations were. SO realistic. So for me, the book was already wonderful. But then I started reading the words.... and that's when I realized how wonderful this book really is. It's all about how kids go to practice t-ball/baseball and work with a coach who encourages them, how fun the game is, having games, and how nice it is to be part of a team. Not the winning and losing aspect of the game that is so focused on at major league games, but the pure fun and enjoyment of the game from the perspective of a young child. And it rhymes too, so the kids are pretty focused on the words AND the illustrations.
Absolutely I would give this book more stars if I could. It's the perfect book for the t-baller in your life, and for any young child playing baseball. Would make a great gift too.

aren't the illustrations extraordinary? though I confess, I gave it only 4 stars, because the text didn't have too much substance.
