Baseball 1 2 3

Press:Dk Pub DK CHILDREN (February 14, 2001)
Author Name:Buckley, James


Essentials for the youngest fans: a baseball, a baseball cap, and DK's Major League Baseball board books. 
It's no surprise that for millions of American children, "ball" is their first word and a baseball cap is their first headgear.
Kids and baseball go hand in hand.
There's no better way to introduce America's favorite pastime to little ones than with DK's Major League Baseball Board Books.
Kids' natural interest in baseball combines with their curiosity about counting and learning the ABCs in these grand-slam hits for the baby and toddler set.
This adorable book uses baseballs, gloves, caps, and some of today's most popular stars to help kids learn to count.
From 1 Baseball to 4 Catchers to 9 Pennants, future sluggers and pitchers count numbers with the help of stars like Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Derek Jeter, Pedro Martinez, and many others.

  •     My 19-month old daughter loves this book - she can even identify her "favorite" teams when they appears on the pages. It's a simple and colorful introduction to the extreme basics of baseball (i.e. pitcher, baserunner, bat, ball, glove, etc.), and you can elaborate on the pages by identifying brands (for bat, ball, glove), teams, and players.

  •     Yes, it's about baseball and numbers, but it doesn't try to educate the young reader on VORP calculations or the merits of combining SLG and OBP. Instead, it goes back to basics and relies on the classics: one baseball, two bats, three gloves, four catchers, five baserunners, six mascots, seven hitters, eight pitchers, nine pennants, and ten baseball caps.Older readers will appreciate the inclusion of Ivan Rodriguez as a Texas Ranger; Pedro Martinez as a Boston Red Sock; and cameos by Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire. It gives a bit of a dated feel by not including future steroid abusers Barry Bonds and Jason Giambi, but seeing Junior Griffey and Randy Johnson more than compensates.The tension builds slowly but progressively, and culminates in a finale you won't soon forget. I know I won't... or can't.-Fred
