#MMBBR #Review #SportsIllustratedKids #Baseball

April is for are two books that baseball fans will love to share with their little ones!  They may even sneak off to read it themselves!

My First Book of Baseball, the second Rookie Book from Sports Illustrated Kids, coaches young kids through the game of baseball with a visual retelling of an actual MLB game--from the first pitch to the game winning hit! Strikes, outs, steals, foul balls, home runs and more are all explained using a fun mix of Sports Illustrated action photography, simple text with engaging graphics, and a full glossary of essential baseball terms and phrases. An illustrated rookie player character also appears on every page, providing fun facts to help the next generation of fans better understand the game. Perfect for beginning readers, My First Book of Baseball is meant to be a shared reading experience between parents and their young minor league rookies before, during, and after the ball game.

There is something special about a book that first introduces a child to something.  It is is one of those books that I, I feel, a child will remember for a lifetime.  In MY FIRST BOOK OF BASEBALL: Mostly Everything Explained About the Game children and adults alike will be taken away into the world of baseball from the formation of teams, to how the game is played to where and why.  What I love about this book is that there is a cartoon character that we follow throughout the book as he learns the game.  But what is even cooler is that the he is among live action pictures of the game and the players in real pictures.  It is a really cool detail that my kids and I appreciated.  All the speech bubbles are fun to read too, as it cool to see what the players are thinking during those moments.  This is an easy to read and easy to understand lighthearted look at the game of baseball.  I cannot wait to read it to my kids during the baseball until.  I know that the kids will get pumped up and ready for baseball season!  5 stars   

Baseball: Then to WOW! shows readers how baseball has evolved from the early days of the 1920s to the game it is today. Using MLB action photographs, illustrations, stories, and trivia, the book is a journey through time both for baseball fans and those new to the game. Kids will learn how basic equipment has changed from fingerless gloves to specially tailored leather-bound mitts and how the evolution of game strategy has transformed the sport, players, and equipment. Players throughout history are stacked up against each other in every position so fans can dream up the perfect fantasy team with Babe Ruth playing alongside Hank Aaron and Reggie Jackson. A fun-filled section of the book explores everything fan culture-from the perfect ballpark frank to the importance of baseball cards and video games in popularizing the sport.

Are you ready for some baseball?????? Yes, it is that time of year again and I am so pumped up, as are my kids. Baseball: Then to WOW! is a great book to introduce a child to the game of baseball in a more detailed and comprehensive way. This book covers it all from the basics, to the players, to the uniforms, to the strategy of game play, to the fan experience and so much more. It takes you on a time line of how the game has evolved over the years. It is such a perfect book for the coffee table in your sports room or the gathering place of sports fans. I really loved this book because it is an in-depth look into the sport of baseball.  You feel like you are privy to insider information, which is a delight for any lover of the game or lover of reading. You will be amazed time and time again when you pick this book up to read.  Every single time you pick it up to read it you will notice something new or read something new.  Buy this book today and have it by you during the season...for the slow games you can fill it with something fun!  I just think this book is AMAZING!! 5 stars!
