Just in Time for the World Series, Play Ball, Have Fun

It’s that time of year again, Baseball World Series! In our home, we watch the games, cheer on our teams, and of course eat hot dogs. This year to add to the celebration, I’ve released two baseball books. The first is Play Ball, Have Fun and the second one is the Imagine Book Play Ball, Have Fun Read, Imagine, Draw.  I hope you enjoy them!

Chick Heather's New Neighborhood: New Friends

The theme of the book and the extra fun factor of the finger puppets make this a good choice. Janice

What a fun read! Moving cross country or starting a new school, change is never easy for kids and can be difficult to talk about. Several great life lessons are learned as Chick Heather makes friends in her new neighborhood. Stacia

I found this book to be delightful. Mark

I think it is a wonderful book for families of younger children who have moved. Gwynn

Many children have to move multiple times so this book prepares them. It is colorful and a fun book which helps them.  Sierra
