Notable for Children

Children’s Book Review

NOTABLE FOR CHILDREN:  "Lucky: Maris, Mantle and My Best Summer Ever" (Simon & Schuster, $15.99,  192 pages) is geared to readers 8 years and up. This wondrous work is all about Louis and his summer of 1961 and a front row seat to the epic Mickey Mantle-Roger Maris battle for the  home run crown.

"Sluggers"  by award winning illustrator Loren Long and award winning author Phil Bildner  (Simon & Schuster, geared to ages 8-12) is a series that mixes adventure and sports and is perfect for someone in your Little League set.


Books include: "Water, Water Everywhere," "Great Ball of Fire," "Blastin' The Blues," "Magic in the Outfield," "Horsin' Around."   All are carefully crafted, enjoyable reads, cleverly illustrated and a treat for younger readers of all persuasions.
