I am sharing this post as part of a collaboration with Bloggin’ Mamas and The Hometown All Stars. I received books and other items in exchange for my participation. All opinions expressed are my own.
Although it’s been a few years since my kids played baseball, I remember those years very fondly. I got to be a coach for my boys when they were at a very young age. This series of books would have been a great help in teaching the fundamentals as well as given them books to read that they would have been interested in. Thankfully I have nieces and nephews to share these great books and my love of baseball with.
The Hometown All Stars is a book series for children that focuses on teaching early sports skills along with interactive, educational activities, and more importantly – fun! Kids ages 3-7 years old and parents, teachers, librarians, and others who want to promote “Less Screen, More Green” and get kids outside and active again! The Hometown All Stars series is also for parents who don’t know much about baseball and want to be ahead of the curve when their kids begin to play, for sports enthusiasts looking for a book that doesn’t involve talking animals to read at bedtime to their children, and for anyone interested in promoting the love of baseball and sports overall to a new generation.

HOMETOWN ALL STARS AT A GLANCE
Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball
Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball teaches children about baseball using real coaching techniques. In this interactive storybook, kids will find hidden baseballs in the pictures, answer trivia questions, and there’s even a page for autographs from their favorite players. Fun, interactive and educational.
This book was really cute. It took the mystery out of what happens at the very first baseball practice. The illustrations were colorful and eye-catching. A perfect bedtime story for kids just getting ready to begin playing t-ball this year.
Magic Bat Day
Magic Bat Day is the first real practice after the Hometown All Stars get their uniforms. Batting is the most fun of all skills and drills! This book concept shows techniques of how to hold the bat and where to stand. Most importantly, it shows that every kid can find their own ‘magic’ bat and the magic within themselves to hit the ball!
This was an excellent book for teaching kids that they can hit well with a little practice. I liked that Nick got to pick out a bat that he felt was best for him. Drawing a dot on the ball to help Nick focus was a great idea. I can’t wait for my 5 year old nephew to get these books for Christmas. He’s going to love them!
