Picture Book Review: Goodnight Baseball, by Michael Dahl and Christina Forshay (Illustrator)


Goodnight Baseball, by Michael Dahl and Christina Forshay (Illustrator)

From the arrival at the stadium to the last goodnight, Goodnight Baseball is a sweet, nostalgic tale– told in gentle, funny rhyme– about the thrill of the game and a day at the ballpark.

Hardcover: 32 pages
Publisher: Picture Window Books (February 1, 2013)

My Review:

Goodnight Baseball is a picture book that will appeal to young children, especially baseball lovers.  It is written in rhymes, which works well for the most part.  There are only a few lines here and there that don’t quite work.

The illustrations are sweet and perfect for the story.  The colors that Forshay uses give off a warm, cheerful feeling that comes with happy childhood memories.

    Perfect book for boys and girls! But mostly boys. There should be a softball book for girls… Anyways this sounds good. I like the cover more than anything.
