“The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read.”

Young Reader Reaction: From the first reading, our preschooler loved pointing to the letter emphasized on the page.
Adult Reader Reaction: I am in awe that someone could pull together an A to Z for baseball. The poetry is not near as awesome as the illustrations and the baseball history.
