    1. Here's a great book of baseball history, for kids in a number of age ranges. The multilayered text & illustrations will make this book an evergreen on your bookshelf. I'm currently reading to my 2 1/2 year old-since he knows the words to this classic 7th inning stretch tune from his daycare music class. My son loves the pictures and the song-we read/sing our way through the book. The book also tells us the story of the 1908 classic match up between the New York Giants and Chicago Cubs at the [...]

    2. Reaction:I love this book. It reminds me of exactly like the ballgame. Which this weekend I'm going to a Tigers game so that gets me all amped up! Also, even at some ball games they end up standing up and singing this song (usually around the seventh inning stretch). The pictures actually do pretty good justice of very one waiting to get in the gates and then all the hoots and hollering with all the banner and such for their teams. Also, I like that it puts peanuts in the the pictures. Peanuts a [...]

    3. A tribute to the song and to the game. Rich historical information is included with the lyrics and illustrations, with plenty to satisfy baseball fans. Each page of lyrics includes illustrations in the style of the early 1900s and historical background information. Includes the lesser known verses of the original. Ages 10 and up.

    4. Absolutely beautiful book. As one who grew up going to ballgames, this brings back the simple pleasure of going to a baseball game. My seven-year-old said, "It's just the words to the song." That is true. But when I sat down to look at the illustrations with him (and my 8yo and 3yo), we pored over the gorgeous colors and details of a time gone by. I want this book. It's pure nostalgia.

    5. Easy to follow pictures and plain words tell the song of take me out to the ball game. Great for toddler group esp good for those with special needs to focus better with music. Text can be sung along instead of read.

    6. Sing along or read the story of one of the greatest baseball rivalries ever- Cubs-Giants. Perfect for little baseball fans.
