Sports Illustrated Kids’ Pro Files: Baseball – A Great Book for Kids JUST IN TIME for Baseball Season!
Sports Illustrated Kids has just released a book all about baseball. Sports Illustrated Kids’ Pro Files: Baseball features statistics and bios from some of the best players in Major League Baseball. The amazing photography, kid friendly writing, and plenty of charts, diagrams, and tables make this a great book for adults and kids alike!
As a former teacher, I LOVE how this book is an interesting non-fiction text for readers. It can be pretty tricky to find non-fiction, but Sports Illustrated Kids’ Pro Files: Baseball has really delivered. You can use this book to go over so many of the features of non-fiction text that your kids will be studying in school. The amazing colors and captivating design of the pages will keep your readers tuned in and excited to see what’s next. You can even read some of the sections of this book as a directional How To! You can help your little one understand how directions are written, how to interpret them, and how to pitch a ball like a pro all at the same time! Worried that you won’t be able to help much in the drills? Not to worry. Experts have broken down skills and created drills that are easy to follow in this book.
Sports Illustrated Kids’ Pro Files: Baseball highlights many of today’s biggest baseball starts. Included in the book are:
· Justin Verlander
· Joe Mauer
· Evan Longoria
· Albert Pujols
· Roy Halladay
While this book is recommended for ages 8-12, you can definitely make it work for both older and younger readers. My little guy is (almost) 2 and LOVED this book. He’s pretty into anything that involves a ball, and once he saw the pictures… it was all over. He actually likes to turn to different pages and try to mimic what the players are doing. I’m sure that it looks a lot different on him than it would an 8 year old, but it just goes to show you how engaging Sports Illustrated Kids’ Pro Files: Baseball really is!
By now you are probably wondering where you can pick this up for your own Grand Slammer. That’s easy! It’s available at www.sikids.com/profilesbaseball and retailers nationwide. Get yours before the season really gets rolling!
