"Even a tired parent will find his or her eyes propped wide open by Herzog's multiple anecdotes for each letter...Even nonbaseball fans with Little Leaguers at home will find plenty to like about Herzog's informative, multilevel alphabet book. They will especially appreciate the book's excellent page design and its realistic artwork by Melanie Rose."--"Sacremento Bee (Sacremento, CA)" (May 2004)show more
