Editorial Reviews

Gr. 2^-4. Hubaldo, a fifth-grader who lives in Caracas, the capital of Venezuela, would rather play baseball, beisbol in Spanish, than do anything else. In an engaging essay teamed with crisp, colorful photographs, Hubaldo introduces his family and friends as well as baseball as it is played in the Venezuelan barrios. Baseball, the most popular sport in Venezuela, is truly an "all-American sport" because, as this book shows, the game is played and pursued with passion in both North and South America. This dynamic sports photo-essay will be fun for sports fans and effective for social studies units.
