I Spy with My Little Eye Baseball by Brad Herzog and photographer David Milne
What kid doesn't love an I Spy book? This one places two photos next to each other, all baseball related of course, and has the reader pick out the differences in the photos. There's a specific number of changes for each photo, so the finding process could easily be turned into a timed game. Fun!
Little Baseball by Brad Herzog and illustrator Doug Bowles
I've already handed this one off to my 3-year-old nephew who loves it! Easy riddles reveal simple baseball facts for toddlers. Very basic, but that's perfect for the age level and works as a great introduction to the sport. There's a football one too, but since it's baseball season and all... :)
Lipman Pike: America's First Home Run King by Richard Michelson and illustrator Zachary Pullen
The illustrations in this one are fantastic! Telling the story of how Lipman Pike joined a local baseball club in Brooklyn in the mid-1800's and soon became a professional, much to the dismay of his parents. Over the years he made history for his home runs!
A really nice non-fiction picture book with exceptional illustrations.
SO, if you're family loves baseball, these would all be great choices to check out!
Thanks, Sleeping Bear Press, for the review copies!
