• B Is for Baseball: Alphabet Cards

    Simply Read Books recently sent me Doug Keith’s “B is for Baseball: Alphabet Cards.”

    These are baseball themed falsh cards to teach your litle ones the alphabet.

    Keith’s illustrations on each card are outstanding. I showed them to my kids. And, even though mine, almost seven and nine, are too old for alphabet flashcards, they enjoyed seeing how each letter was formed in a baseball setting – like a batter at the plate, a player in the field, player on deck, etc.  Great stuff.

    If you’re a big baseball fan and you have, or know someone who has, a little one about ready to learn the alphabet, you owe it to yourself to check out “B is for Baseball: Alphabet Cards.”

      I read my three boys the book H is for Home Run. Great alphabet book. Lots of Yankee references in there of course “B is for the Babe, the New York Yankee great, who batted balls twards bleachers at a then unheard of rate” happens to be my oldest sons favoite!

      My favorite:

      With vim and verve
      He walloped the curve
      From Texas to Duluth,
      Which is no small task
      And I beg to ask
      Was there ever a fella like Ruth?

      BTW back in the day Ogden Nash wrote a baseball alphabet poem which contained:

      Y is for Young,
      The magnificent Cy.
      Men batted against him,
      But I never knew why.
