Take Me Out to the Yakyu by Aaron Meshon

Just in time for baseball season! This adorable book follows a young boy and his love for baseball. Both of his grandfathers - one from America and the other from Japan - love the sport, which means this lucky kid gets to watch baseball games on two opposite shores. The languages and mascots might be different, but it doesn't change the love of the game. With bright, fun illustrations that are still highly informative (and are great for finding the similarities and minor differences in both countries), this is a definite home run. Perfect for young baseball fans and for pops and grandpas who aren't sure what book to read to their kids and grandkids. For ages 2-6. --reviewed by Robbin of Compass Books in SFO
