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.
My 5 year old will be starting T-ball for the first time in the spring. Her older sister enjoyed it and now will be playing softball at the Middle School. When I came across the Hometown All Stars book series, I thought this would be a perfect way to introduce my youngest to the sport and help me teach her how to play.
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.
Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball helped my daughter understand what would be expected of her at her first practice. She is eager to learn more about the sport but is hesitant because she is unsure of what to do. When we read the story together, l could tell she was excited to learn what T-ball is all about.
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!
Magic Bat Day was the second book we read to continue our journey of learning how to play. It is a very positive story that gives helpful insight on how to hold the bat and get ready to hit the ball. “Read it again!” immediately came from my daughter. Even though my older daughter played, I definitely learned a thing or two about proper technique!
