Read for: Early Reader Challenge
Synopsis: "Mo Jackson is a small boy with a big passion for sports. He may not be the biggest, the fastest, or the strongest kid on the team, but he won't let that stop him from playing!
Baseball season is has arrived and Mo is all set to play with his team, the Lions. But Mo always bats last, and he always plays right field – and no balls ever come to right field. Will Mo ever get his chance to help the Lions win?"
My Review: This is a great early reader book to pick up in spring during the start of baseball season. Munchkin really connected with this book as he is one of the smallest and youngest kids on his Rookie team. It is a nice reminder that you don't always get the hit or the ball but by continuing to show up you can help your team. It is a great level 2 book with longer sentences, more text on each page but still easy, sight words. Young baseball fans and players will really enjoy this one.
My Rating: This is a really great one for kids who might be lacking a little confidence in the team sports. We certainly enjoyed it and give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag!
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
