Little Rhino loves to play baseball with his grandpa after school, but that is just plastic balls and bats. But he is stilled thrilled when he starts baseball league, even though using a real bat and baseball and learning the rules will be a challenge. But the neighborhood bully, Dylan is on his team, will he ruin everything?
This was a fun sports story for 2-3 graders. Coming into this read with a bit of knowledge about baseball would be helpful to readers. Despite the simplicity and short length of this book, the authors manage to establish quite a few memorable characters and subplots. I think students would enjoy this great start to a series.
