Book Review: F is for Fenway

It's been a great postseason, and now the Boston Red Sox are headed to the World Series to take on the St. Louis Cardinals.

This promises to be a great World Series, and it will be played on one of baseball's greatest stages -- Fenway Park. Kids can learn all about this unique stadium in the cute book F is for Fenway.

F is for Fenway is an alphabet book about "America's Oldest Major League Ballpark."  Even if you're not a die-hard Red Sox fan, you'll enjoy the artwork and endless trivia on Fenway.

Each page contains an alphabet rhyme, a vintage-looking illustration, and a sidebar with interesting stories and factoids. Some of the poems require a bit more explanation for younger readers to understand.

Every letter of the alphabet has its own poem about Fenway Park. In case you're wondering what's on the "Q" page...

Q is for Quarter
You can't get much for a quarter these days,
But back at the start of the baseball craze,
A dime would get you a bleacher seat
With plenty left over for something to eat. 


Bet they'll be spending a little more than that for World Series tickets.
