"A nice primer to get your youngster interested in the game. You can read it to your three-year-old, or your six-year-old can enjoy it solo."- Baseball Musings

"This is a great book for the early, young readers who are just learning the basics of baseball. The format of having the reader go through an actual game is genius; I could really picture this being used in conjunction with a child's first baseball game. It's fun to read aloud adult to child, or-thanks to simple words and big lettering-a book kids can tackle on their own."- Literary Hoots

"While there are other suitable introductory books on baseball for youngsters, readers will find the presentation of information [in My First Book of Baseball] enjoyable, more engaging and certainly more entertaining. Libraries would do well to add this option to their collections." - School Library Journal

"Perfect for the preschool set, this is a gorgeous picture book that explains the basics of baseball with simple text and vibrant photos." - Imagination Soup
