Home Runs!

All Star! Honus Wagner and the Most Famous Baseball Card Ever By Jane Yolen
Grades 2-5

H is for Home Run: A Baseball Alphabet By Brad Herzog
Grades K-5

Henry Aaron's Dream By Matt Tavares
Grades 2-5

No Easy Way By Fred Bowen
Grades 3-6

Shoeless Joe and Black Betsy By Phil Bildner

There Goes Ted Williams: The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived By Matt Tavares
Grades 2-5

The Unforgettable Season: The Story of Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams 
and the Record-Setting Summer of '41 By Phil Bildner
Grades 2-5

These are all fantastic examples of non-fiction, historical fiction and biographical sports books. I like to put these out in the spring as a special baseball display in my library along with some other biographies of popular players in our local area like Derek Jeter. I find these are great books to grab my reluctant boy readers and yet they are all examples of high quality writing and illustrations.
