Children’s Book Committee – April Pick

April 1, 2016


You Never Heard of Casey Stengel?!
by Jonah Winter, illustrated by Barry Blitt
(Schwartz & Wade Books, 2015)

How did a “goofball” mediocre baseball player become possibly the greatest manager in baseball history? Playful watercolors. (7-9)

Our Young Reviewer says:

This book is great for baseball fans or for those who enjoy a fun biography. It reads almost like a tall tale, but it’s true. It’s funny, but has a message about working hard and believing in yourself. Casey sticks to his guns and is ultimately successful. He can laugh at himself and gets the last laugh too.

– Dante, 12, Amagansett, NY
