My First Book of Baseball is a Rookie Reader for the new reader. The text is larger and some words are enhanced so they look like they are hand lettered and huge. There are smaller talk balloons for the players, so kids will be drawn in to read more around the page. This helps children with short attention spans to roam around the page and find more interest. This title takes you through a game and takes on all the basics featuring many contemporary players in the photos. The student reading this book will learn vocabulary and lots of rules of the game. The commentary of the books sounds like an announcer giving us play-by-play of a game we're watching. This beginning reader book has tons of actions, bright photos with drawings and incorporates exciting word use, just right for your new reader.
I enjoyed both of these books tremendously and will be able to recommend them to patrons when they come in looking for more info on America's favorite pastime.
