Just Like Josh Gibson: Thoughts

Posted in Fiction, Picture Books at 1:03 am by Rosepixie

Just Like Josh GibsonThis is a really sweet story about a girl getting to show she was as good (if not better) at baseball than the boys in the 1940s and then telling her granddaughter about it years later.  The pictures are wonderful and the tone of the story is just perfect.  This is a good read-aloud book.  I love the expression on the girl’s face on the cover – it’s just perfect!  She’s show pure joy of the game with her eye glued to the ball!
