A man ought to read just as inclination leads him, for what he reads as a task will do him little good.

H is for Home Run

AR: 6.1
by Brad Herzog     Illus. by Melanie Rose
Long Picture Book
Genre: Non-fiction

Do you like baseball? If so, this is the book for you! It is an alphabet book. Hold on! Before you say "Alphabet books are for babies" you should check this out. On each page, there is a simple rhyme about something having to do with baseball. Then there's a whole lot of information about that thing or other baseball things that begin with the same letter. You can learn about the Cy Young Award ("C"), sacrifice bunts ("S"), and baseball fans ("F"). I enjoyed this book, and the paintings were well done. If you are a sports fan, you should enjoy it, too, especially if you are a baseball fan! Go Dodger Blue!
