Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Maryann Kovalski. Fitzhenry & Whiteside, $15.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-1-55041-897-2

The title and characters may be the same, but Take Me Out to the Ball Game by Maryann Kovalski is a brand-new version of her story first published in 1992. Grandma insists that Jenny and Joanna come on a surprise trip-even though it's a school day-""just this once."" Delighted when they arrive at Yankee Stadium, the girls break out into the title song. The illustrations exuberantly convey the joy of root-root-rooting for the home team. .
