That is a good book which is opened with expectation and closed with profit.

Do you like baseball? If so, this is the book for you! It is an alphabet book. Hold on! Before you say "Alphabet books are for babies" you should check this out. On each page, there is a simple rhyme about something having to do with baseball. Then there's a whole lot of information about that thing or other baseball things that begin with the same letter. You can learn about the Cy Young Award ("C"), sacrifice bunts ("S"), and baseball fans ("F"). I enjoyed this book, and the paintings were well done. If you are a sports fan, you should enjoy it, too, especially if you are a baseball fan! Go Dodger Blue!
