    Clearly written and illustrated by fans of America's game this ABC book offers baseball terms or terms associated with baseball for all 26 letters of the alphabet Because of that focus in some respects it could serve as a primer for someone new to the sport Readers will encounter phrases such as around the horn as well as a brief explanation of the phrase But the book also provides a retrospective perspective on some of baseball's legends such as Babe Ruth and even foods such as Cracker Jack and hotdogs typically consumed at the game Back matter includes Fun Facts about baseball including the teams in the American League and the National League and a drawing of a baseball diamond The illustrations feature soft colors often featuring families bonding in some way over baseball or healthy players in action This title would thrill any lover of baseball or might inspire some readers to create their own baseball or football or basketball scrapbook

    1 Randy Riley’s Really Big Hit by Chris Van Dusen 20122 With the seasonal connection to the start of Baseball I think this twin text will be a hit pun intended in any 1st to 2nd grade classroom The students will enjoy the insight of lingo and vocabulary of the ABC’s book while Randy Riley’s story brings in the emotions of being a player of the game with a twist of fiction3 Descriptive Text with no seuential order at all Students will either love the random style and some may not4 KWL Activity as a class seems like a great way to see who the ball players are As we go in the alphabet it would be good to call on those students to predict what baseball words might be for the next letter For Randy Riley’s Really Big Hit we could use our chart to see what baseball lingo is used We could also discuss times that we have been disappointed in our own actions The students could use both books then to write a baseball whopper

    While this is a great picture book about baseball I did feel that it left a couple of things outFirst of all there was no mention of the all girls baseball league that played during and immediately following World War II If they're important enough to have a movie made about them and a place in the Baseball Hall of Fame they're important enough to include in a book about baseballSecondly the stats at the end list Barry Bonds as the record breaker for career home runs At the very least this stat should have an asterisk next to it with some explanation of the controversy surrounding this player Hank Aaron should still be the Home Run King Of course this is coming from a die hard Atlanta Braves fan so do with that what you will
