From Our Editors

"Using a you-are-there approach, Gutelle tells about five special moments in the careers of baseball Hall-of-Famers Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Jackie Robinson, Roberto Clemente, and Hank Aaron. The present-tense gambit brings immediacy to the narratives, and the drama of the moment will grab young fans. Solid reading for third-graders".--Booklist
