I am sharing this post as part of a collaboration with Bloggin’ Mamas and The Hometown All Stars. I received books and other items in exchange for my participation.  All opinions expressed are my own.

In my house, we are always watching sports. Our favorites to watch are baseball and basketball, though we do catch some football games as well. #MyMister was convinced Papo would be a linebacker someday, but we realized soon enough that Papo was more into baseball than other sports. I welcomed the opportunity to check out some books related to baseball for kids, as he loves to read. In fact, if I don’t read a story for him at bedtime, he literally pouts. 

The Hometown All Stars is a book series for children that focuses on teaching early sports skills along with interactive, educational activities, and more importantly – fun! Kids ages 3-7 years old and parents, teachers, librarians, and others who want to promote “Less Screen, More Green” and get kids outside and active again! The Hometown All Stars series is also for parents who don’t know much about baseball and want to be ahead of the curve when their kids begin to play, for sports enthusiasts looking for a book that doesn’t involve talking animals to read at bedtime to their children, and for anyone interested in promoting the love of baseball and sports overall to a new generation.

Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball

Nick's Very First Day of Baseball

Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball teaches children about baseball using real coaching techniques. In this interactive storybook, kids will find hidden baseballs in the pictures, answer trivia questions, and there’s even a page for autographs from their favorite players. Fun, interactive and educational.

Since Papo is new to actually playing baseball, this was a great book to get him acquainted with the sport. When we move next year, we plan to look  into getting him into a little league & he will be more prepared thanks to this book. My son loved the colors and illustrations, and the fact that it was simple for him to read. 

Magic Bat Day

Magic Bat Day Cover
Magic Bat Day is the first real practice after the Hometown All Stars get their uniforms. Batting is the most fun of all skills and drills! This book concept shows techniques of how to hold the bat and where to stand. Most importantly, it shows that every kid can find their own ‘magic’ bat and the magic within themselves to hit the ball!

Papo grabbed his plastic bat and began practicing what he learned in this book. Again, the colors and illustrations were bright and simple, staying true to the series. My son loves the different characters and I loved that it got him away from the tablet. I really wish they got out more, and this book helped me to show the kids how fun going outside can be.
