Baseball Baby (Sports Baby)

by Diane Adams (Author) Charlene Chua (Illustrator)

Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

This original board book series, which begins with America's favorite past time--baseball--is sure to be a homerun with the youngest of readers and the sports-loving grown-ups in their lives.

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.
