Goodnight Baseball

 Goodnight Baseball (Capstone Young Readers) (Sports Illustrated Kids)

Goodnight Baseball
Author: Michael Dahl
Illustrator: Christina Forshay
Publisher: Capstone Young Readers

A handsome young boy holds his father’s hand while entering Rockets Park, the big stadium outside of town. He is completely enthralled with the sights and sounds around him. Upon the field, the Rockets and the Stars play a game of ball while father and son chow down some hot dogs and soda. Typical baseball fare, but though the eyes of a child, it holds much more significance.  

If read with a soft, tender voice, Goodnight Baseball is a wonderful bedtime story. Read it with some pep and vigor, and you've got yourself an exciting reminder of what going to a baseball game is really like. Goodnight Baseball is a great way for children and parents and even grandparents to reminisce about the excitement of America’s favorite pastime.

Illustrator, Christina Forshay, has done an amazing job of capturing the innocence of a child’s mind with her splendid graphics. How a child looks back at the field upon exiting the stadium, how they treasure the memorabilia picked up at the gift shops, or the fly ball they caught up in the stands.

Author, Michael Dahl, is an award winning writer who has written over 100 books spanning from child to young adult. Dahl does a fair share of public speaking and shares his home with a ghost named Helen. No joke! Check out his website http://www.michaeldahlwrites.com/about.html.
