Let's Play Baseball

by Charles R. Smith Jr.

Illustrated by Terry Widener

Candlewick 2006

Ages: 5 to 7

Topic: Books about Sports

In this super sturdy picture book with just a few words, a baseball tries to talk to a little boy about wishing he would take him outside to play. "Throw me, catch me," "Pitch me, into the wind."

I think all emergent readers should have this wonderful series.
