Boomer at the Bat (Woodville Tales Book 1) by Julia Dweck

Boomer at the Bat is Julia Dweck's latest release and the first in her new Woodville Tales series. You can read an excerpt and my review.

Whizz! Zoom! Whoosh! Boomer Bunny is the fastest critter in all of Woodville. Now, it's Boomer's turn up at the bat and all the Woodville team is counting on him to win the big game. But in order to do his best, Boomer must learn to slow down and listen.
Laughter fills the air in this high-flying baseball adventure, which mixes humorous rhymes by Julia Dweck with playful illustrations by Chris Kennett. Boomer at the Bat is the first in the Woodville Tales series, teaching youngsters that good sportsmanship is always in season!

My Review
I received this book in return for an honest review.

By Lynda Dickson
Boomer the bunny is playing baseball in front of his home crowd. Will he score a home run? Or are there more important things?
Julia Dweck's rhyming verse is a pleasure to read, as always, and the illustrations by Chris Kennett really bring her animal characters to life. While the kids will enjoy the sporting action in the story, Coach Wuzzle gives a lesson is sportsmanship ("Just play the game the best you can," he tells Boomer) which their parents will appreciate.
I look forward to more children's sporting adventures in upcoming Woodville Tales.
