It was a great bonding experience. It is filled with easy to read sections. You can pick it up and open to just about any page and start reading. There are nice short sections. It also encourages the reader to work on creating their own all star team." — Customer Review

"This book is a fun read, with short and easy-to-read little biographies of some of the great players in baseball history. The bios are brief and there are fun little facts interspersed throughout, making this a bit of a page turner just to see what and who is next. While the reading is easy I think adults will have a good time reading along with younger readers, sharing and passing along their love of baseball to a new generation of fans." — Customer Review
