    3.25 starsI like this alphabet series ..some of the letters are a stretch but I get it it! You can just read the story part or you have the margins that are almost a book in themselves!

    The illustrations were very appealing and I like the idea of using a specific topic to explore the alphabet. But I the content seemed very dry and somewhat uninteresting for the students I was reading to. Therefore, I only gave it three out of five stars.

    This is a somewhat interesting alphabet book that uses terms, items, and famous people from baseball to represent each letter. Personally, I found the book to be very dull and I think its target audience would be limited to boys in first or second grade, if that. In its favor, the pictures were very pleasing to the eye. The characters displayed were of various races and cultures and there was sense of cultural acceptance in the story.LEARNING EXPERIENCE:(This is an activity after the children have become familiar with the book) Each child will take a baseball cut-out and place a letter sticker representing the first letter of their name. When the story is read, the teacher skips the letter and instead says what it stands for. The child with the matching letter will stand up and give their baseball to the teacher when they associate the first letter of their name with the represented letter in the book.

    I think that this is a good book for anyone that is really into baseball. I feel like this book is geared more towards male readers and does not appeal to female readers. This book would be a good book to use to teach young children the alphabet because in the book each letter is used to describe the different terms used in baseball. Also, this book has some rhyming and really good illustrations. I rated this book two stars because in my opinion I did not find the book interesting for young readers. Learning Experience: Each child will choose a letter of the alphabet out of a box and make a sentence that has to with his or her favorite sport.

    Jj - J is for Jackie Robinson, who stood for what was right - to judge on someone's talent, not if they're black or white.Great book about a great game! It's almost like two books - the main entry for the letter (like the one above) and then writing in the side columns about other baseball related items of the same letter! And they are written at two different reading levels! So, it reads one way like a child's first alphabet book, and another way as an informational book for older children looking to learn more about the sport! Very cool illustrations too! This book is a keeper!

    OCTOBER, A perfect time to read this book about baseball. Rather boys or girls, baseball is American's game. By going through the letters of the alphabet chilren delight in what they know and learn about a few of the players and as well as the rules of the game. I enjoy these ABC books, my children checked them out often from my classroom library. I hope that they were times when they became a happy family time to get together, readin aloud, and sharing stories as they communicated with their families in these tough times when too much time is taken away from families enjoying books together.

    This alphabet book will appeal to sports fans. I feel that it can be read in two different manners. Each letter has a simple phrase that accompanies it. Then there is sidebar that goes into more detail and gives a more detailed example of baseball terms that go with the letter.Theme: alphabet, sports, baseballIt could be read to the students, then have them come up with a a-z list of terms for a different sport.

    "H Is for Home Run: A Baseball Alphabet" by Brad Herzog was actually my favorite alphabet book growing up. Therefore, I had to give it 5 out of 5 stars. This book is an ABC book that runs through multiple baseball terms and pieces of equipment. As a young kid this was actually very useful to help me understand more advanced baseball terms. I would recommend this book to any child who enjoys sports books.

    Brad Herzog wrote about baseball and incorporated the alphabet. He uses a lot of baseball terms and his illustrations are great. I liked this book because of the illustrations. My favorite illustration was the one of the little girl hitting a ball off of the tee. The drawings look very real and they are fun to look at.This book could be used to help children learn the alphabet. Young boys would love this book because it is all about baseball.

    H Is For Home Run : A Baseball AlphabetHerzog, Brad.Chelsea, MI : Sleeping Bear Press, c2004.Language : EnglishABC bookAlthough this is an ABC book it is more appropriate for older children. I would recommend this this book to children interested in learning more about baseball. This book could be used in a unit on sports. This story is written in rhyme, but also has a second purpose which is to give facts about baseball. This book is beautifully illustrated.

    An ABC book for all ages. For even the youngest readers and listeners, the alphabet letters are used in poetry including words for each. For older readers and listeners, there are baseball facts associated with each letter as well. This book can be used to build vocabulary and to talk about rhyming words. The pictures are detailed and very colorful. A good read for sports fans.

    Concept Book (ABC's) -- wonderful book dealing with the alphabet as it relates to baseball -- like Z is for Zamboni, each margin has additional information about happenings in baseball as they relate to each letter. Published in 2004

    It is a fun book to learn the alphabet if your children love sports, particularly baseball. It also has some baseball history in it.
