The Children's Book Review

"ALL STAR" by Jane Yolen and illustrated by Jim Burke (Philomel Books, $17.99), is all about Honus Wagner and the most famous baseball card ever. It is about the true grit of one of the greatest shortstops of all time and his card. Perfect for ages 6-8. TRUE GRIT.

"NO EASY WAY" is the story of Ted Williams and the 1941 season, the last one any player ever hit .400. Fred Bowen with words and Charles S. Pyle with images team up to homer with this worthy read from Dutton for ages 6-8. WORTHY

"PLAY BALL CORDUROY!" with lift-the-flaps by B.G. Hennessey with pictures by Lisa McCue (Viking, $11.99, ages 3-5) is a loving look at learning to play baseball. Corduroy and Blue Mouse practice together showing that baseball is all about winning and teamwork. TERRIFIC.
