Our Little League

Chuck Solomon, Author Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers $10.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-517-56798-2
Just in time for opening day, here's a bright, breezy introduction to the world of organized baseball. Solomon's camera follows a Little League team, the Little Mets, through a Saturday practice and then the big game versus the Bombers. A simple text describing the action is illustrated with several pictures on each spread. Dozens of color photographs, taken by a Sports Illustrated photographer, are of exceptional quality. The book is a standout it's bound to make fans even of spectators. And its message is loud and clear; as the kids' supportive coach reminds them, ""The most important thing is to keep having fun.'' Shot after shot of enthusiastic Little Leaguers, all trying hard (some succeeding, some not), project the fun and energy of the game with the accuracy of a well-aimed pitch. Ages 4-7. (March)
