20,000 Baseball Cards Under the Sea - Jon Buller, Susan Schade

I love the underlying science and mystery, all the while tying in the baseball theme and history of the game.  Great images and illustrations with tons of fun!   This is one of the most appropriate words, pictures and story combinations geared to the correct audience.  I give this a 100% on the "Topic-Execution-Age, Appropriate"    (100% T.E.A.A.)

Magic Bat Day

Magic Bat Day (The Hometown All Stars) - Dale Tangeman, Kevin Christofora

Magic Bat Day is the first real practice after they get their uniforms. Batting is the most fun of all skills and drills! This book concept shows techniques of how to hold the bat and where to stand. Most importantly, it shows that every kid can find their own magic bat and self- confidence.

 

Most parents today know very little about baseball. So, unlike previous generations, they don't have a lot to pass on to their children, and most kids today know more about Angry Birds than they do about America's National Pastime. America’s Pastime is fading away due to America’s own melting pot. Generations of Americans have been diluted and have not grown up on baseball.

 

It’s a different world, and today’s kids have lost touch with the game. Kids don’t play outside much, and the sandlot’s turned into a parking lot. Now they’re playing more computer games and watching TV. Baseball’s getting lost. I want to bring the American pastime back into kids’ lives and I know how.

 

As a coach, I see kids showing up at their first practice not knowing what home plate is. They don’t even know which direction to run! There’s such a need for baseball … the things they learn will help them in every part of their lives. Things like teamwork, discipline, things like strategy and thinking before they act. I am going to help get kids out of the house and get them moving – more green, less screen!

It all starts with a bedtime story!
