An endearing story about two brothers who receive special help from a talking ball that taught them more than just how to play the game.
The Talking Baseball is the kind of book that puts magic into the bedtime-story sessions between parents and children.
When Jake comes across an old, weathered baseball at a local yard sale, he doesn’t suspect that there is anything special about it — after all, it is a worn-out baseball that cost twenty-five cents — until it comes to life and talks to him!
Not only does it talk, The Talking Baseball also teaches Jake an array of skills and rules about his favorite sport! Jake’s daily training with his new-found “private coach” turns him into a very good Little League player, although nobody believes Jake’s baseball really talks.
One strange day, however, the talking baseball stops talking to Jake. Even stranger, the talking baseball starts talking and teaching baseball to Noah, Jake’s younger brother, and another baseball fanatic in the family. In one magical moment, Jake learns a valuable lesson about patience, persistence, and sharing in this visually-arresting children’s picture book.
A monumental offering from author Bette Levine, The Talking Baseball takes children on a whimsical, lesson-filled joyride through its colorful pages. Featuring the spellbinding illustrations of noted artist Julie Glaser Howery and a lesson-filled story about juvenile issues, The Talking Baseball is the kind of book that puts magic into the bedtime-story sessions between parents and children.
