The Babe & I

The perfect Thanksgiving gift: The Babe & I by David A. Adler. This picture book masterfully weaves together three strands: The Great Depression, a father and son bonding by overcoming adversity, and Babe Ruth himself, as he makes a guest appearance. With historical accuracacy, great warmth, and the charming illustrations of Terry Widener, this book makes a fine thanks giving gift all year long!

David Adler also wrote Lou Gehrig: the Luckiest Man. Another good one
