Step up to the plate with this counting book about America's favorite pastime. THE BASEBALL COUNTING BOOK is spring training for little sluggers. The count is zero to zero when the ump calls, "Play ball!" Nine innings later we've counted balls, strikes, players, fans, and more, all the way to twenty. No one strikes out with these fun rhymes. Little leaguers will find themselves counting their way through practice and pointing out all the new things they've learned about this great game when they watch the pro's on TV or at the parks. Early readers will hit a home run with this charming counting book.

This is a great book to teach little boys how to count. It goes from one through twenty showing how each number relates to the game of baseball. It gives basic rules and regulations of the game, while teaching some of the sport's history as well.

Genre: InformationalAge App: k-2Summary: The baseball counting book helps students work on counting through the simple story of a baseball game. Students learn about baseball and counting at the same time. The story is about a baseball game which the author incorporates numbers throughout. The information of the scorecard for baseball is incorrect.Media: Ink & Wash

Review: This book is a good example of non-fiction because it is based off of true baseball facts. It helps children learn to count to twenty by using pictures and terms from baseball.Level: Primary
