*I received these baseball books for review. All opinions are my own*
I LOVE baseball. Whenever the weather was nice enough, my family would head out to the local diamond to throw some pitches, and run the bases. With 6 kids, 2 parents, and an aunt, uncle and grandma all living under one roof, we had ample players for 2 teams. Or, at least, good enough to pitch, hit, catch, and tag.
I remember my first time going to a real ball game, sitting in the stands, trying to understand everything that was going, and figure out the scoreboard. There was way more to baseball than what we played on those perfect spring days. My parents were great, though, and always took the time to try and explain what everything meant when I’d ask questions. Questions like, “How are they going to get the ball from over the fence?” and “What is a foul ball?”
These questions and more are all answered in the My First Book of Baseball by Sports Illustrated for Kids.
I was so stoked to check out these two new books from Sports Illustrated for Kids. Baseball is my first love when it comes to sports, and will always hold a special place in my life. Whether it was playing with my family, going to a game, watching the Red Sox on TV, or playing softball that one year in elementary school.
My First Book of Baseball did not disappoint. With bright colors and witty commentary from the young kid guide, I felt truly immersed in the sport. Lincoln, who has a hard time sitting still for books, was completely into it as well. He especially liked the 7th inning stretch, placed in a timely spot for us to get up and stretch!
Baseball Then to WOW! is geared more towards kids who already have an interest in the sport. Perhaps they’re on a team, or just enjoying wathcing the game. There are more black-and-white photographs from the early days of baseball and a whole lot more reading to be done in this book.
That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it, though. Because I did. Immensely. Many of the pictures reminded me of the cards I used to collect. I had a long white cardboard box, the perfect size for the cards. Allowance money always had a gum budget solely for the hope I’d get a rare player card and one I didn’t already own. Otherwise, it would mean an attempt at trading with my brothers who were just as possessive of their cards as myself.

That sounds like a fantastic book. I am sure it explains it A LOT better than I do 🙂
I think this is a fantastic idea. In one fell swoop, kids learn to love reading and physical activity. Both of which are super important.

My son is just starting to get into sports. This would be a perfect book for him so that he can understand this or better. I wish it was around when I was younger.
We live in New England so the first baseball book my kids got was 86 Years: The Legend of the Boston Red Sox. My husband watches every game he can.
This is a great idea! The book would perfect for my son, Finn.
I used to take the kids to local B league games. It was such a blast. It started a lifelong love a baseball for my kids.

Wow, what great books… I love them. I know that Hubby would love it if the kids got into baseball as much as he loves it. Thanks so much for sharing
How cute is that?!?! I need it for my nephew. He spends his weekends at the ball field, watching his big brothers play. It’d be a great way for him to stay busy & happy.

Those books look great. My kids are not in to sports yet, but I hope that they will be soon. They’re still young yet too. My youngest is thinking of joining soccer. I really love the illustrations in these books.
These look like great books. I used to love going to baseball games when i was little with my Dad.
My boy has really gotten into baseball this last year. With our Royals winning the World Series, it sparked a new light! Can’t wait to show these to him.
What a cute book that is for teaching little kids about baseball. Back in the day I remember as a Baby Boomer everyone live and breathed baseball so we grew up going to all the games at Yankee Stadium.

Baseball is the only sport (beside hockey) that I enjoy watching! These books look like they would be very fun for kids.
What a wonderful way to explain sports in a simple fun way. I think even I would benefit from this package to get a better understanding of the game.
I love the way they created this book. The illustrations completely catch you up in it right away.
These look perfect for our 4 year old. My husband is a huge sports fan and she is just starting to want to learn about the rules and traditions of the game.
My grandson would really like these books.

I always say I wish I’d discovered yoga when I was still competing in sports. It has taught me more about breathing and body control than all the gymnastics and high jumping ever did. There are great strength and injury-prevention benefits, but I think the breathing and mindset benefits are even more powerful for an athlete. And the awareness is starting to grow….I see articles every couple of weeks about high school and college teams, as well as pro athletes, who are incorporating yoga into their training. When I lived in Denver, I worked with three different college teams, and that was about 7 years ago. It’s happening! Athletes see the potential.coded pushup board video

I missed the cerimony too (it was from 1am to 5am here in Italy), but luckily I cought the second part re-aired in the morning. Really liked Thomas Boch’s opening speech, all about the values the Olympics uphold and why they matter in today’s world.Boxing Updates
Football and epistemology. I love it. The connection is so obvious you wonder there is not a whole literature on the subject. Further evidence of how the academy and the people who gather to watch the Super Bowl over chips and beer can lose track of one another. I say if we are serious about praxis — i.e., scholarship that stands a chance of helping the world become a little more reflective and honest — we need to pay more attention to things like instant replays and sports bloopers. Nice work.gym near me

Love it! I played rugby for a bit in college, and while I didn’t love the high probability of breaking something, and maybe loved the post-game beer too much, it was a great way to meet new people. And fun to tell people I was the hooker.
