Just in time for baseball season!

Babe Ruth came from a poor Baltimore family and, as a kid, he was a handful. It was at a reform school that Babe discovered his talent for baseball, and by the age of nineteen, he was on his way to becoming a sports legend. Babe was often out of shape and even more often out on the town, but he had a big heart and an even bigger swing! Kids will learn all about the Home Run King in this rags-to- riches sports biography. With black-and-white illustrations throughout, a true sports legend is brought to life.

Joan Holub is the author and/or illustrator of many books for children. She lives in North Carolina, where the famous groundhog Sir Walter Wally helps watch the weather at the Museum of Natural Sciences. You can visit Joan at www.joanholub.com.
