A toddler spends an afternoon at the park with his family where he is introduced to baseball for the first time. He makes a few mistakes as he warms up, takes the field, and goes to bat, but he keeps going until he scores the final run of the day and goes to bed a winner.
What I loved: This was a delightful book about baseball perfect for older infants and young toddlers. The full page illustrations feature lots of bright colors and a delightful family playing baseball together. The text rhymes, which is great for young ears to enjoy listening to and rolls off the tongue so smoothly. The vibes of the game do come across through the story with mentions of the strikes when at bat and trying to catch the ball in the outfield. This is a light introduction to baseball, which can be enjoyed whether a sports enthusiast or not.
Final verdict: A delightful book of rhyming text, family fun, and lovely illustrations, BASEBALL BABY is a charming board book to share with infants and young toddlers.
