Now that spring training is over and the first pitch of the baseball season has been thrown out, naturally our thoughts turn to the boys of summer and my boy and what he will read this summer. Okay, he can’t read yet, but in honor of the Boston Red Sox I give you, Boston Red Sox 101, a board book from Michaelson Entertainment. Sure, the company offers many other teams, universities, cities, and even presidents, but since my good buddy Colin Moore says the Red Sox rule I will highlight the only the Sox book.
101 My First Team-Board-Books’ Boston Red Sox 101 has a ton of pictures, simple rules of the game, a Fenway Park highlight reel and a history of the Beantown Sox. The book also shows legends of the game like Ted Williams and Carl Yastrzemski (for extra credit see if you can get your kid’s first word to be Yastrzemski). The nice thing about the book is that it works nicely for hard-core obsessive fans who want to turn their kids on to their favorite team and live vicariously through them. That is until they take up soccer and say they hate little league. And the book works for casual fans as a primer for when they take their kids to their first game. The only thing missing is the smell of peanuts and expensive cheap beer.
