Legends of Baseball From Aaron to Ozzie by Mike Suarez is full of information given in alphabetical order about some of the most outstanding baseball players. Some of the players are well known for their batting averages, rings won, no-hitters, curveballs, and stolen bases. The best statistics of some of the greatest players like Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Nolan Ryan, Cy Young, Ken Griffey Jr. and so many more can be found in these pages. How many pitchers have won the three Triple Crowns in the history of baseball? Who are the long-standing rivals of Chicago, Illinois? Are there really baseball cards worth millions of dollars? Which baseball player earned more rings than they have fingers?
I loved Legends of Baseball From Aaron to Ozzie. Mike Suarez has found one of the most interesting ways to help kids learn their alphabet through the use of sports. Every page has information about some of the most famous names in the history of baseball along with intriguing facts about the players. I loved how Suarez used a bit of rhyme in his educational descriptions so that even young children can read and understand. I recommend this book to anyone with children as this is definitely a very different take on helping kids remember their ABCs. The illustrations (by various artists) will capture the imagination of any child as each page prominently displays each baseball player being discussed. Even a child that has not been introduced to America’s favorite pastime (baseball) will have a wonderful time learning their alphabet by the time they finish the book. I look forward to seeing a lot more books like this one from Suarez in the future.
