Check It Out Tuesday: BROTHERS AT BAT by Audrey Vernick

Tuesdays I highlight a book (usually picture) that is popular (or should be!) in my library. Today’s book is BROTHERS AT BAT by Audrey Vernick.

Baseball season started this week in our house. Here’s a math problem, just so you know what my life will be like for the next couple of months:

2 boys X (3 practices + 2 games a week) = A LOT OF BASEBALL

Good thing our family likes baseball. But maybe not quite as much as the family in this book. This is the true story of the Acceras, a family of 16 (!) kids, 12 of whom played baseball–enough for their own team. It’s a heartwarming combination of love of the game and the teamwork involved in being a part of a family.
