Take Me Out to the Ball Game
By Jack Norworth
Illustrated by Amiko Hirao
Performed by Carly Simon
Hardcover and CD
Ages 4 years + 

Take a trip to the ball game with the inimitable Carly Simon and artist Amiko Hirao. Simon's rousing version of baseball's unofficial anthem accompanies Hirao's joyful artwork of adorable animals.

Colorful, collage-like illustrations are your ticket into Sluggers Stadium, where two animal teams step up to the plate and vie for victory - all cheered on by Katie Casey, the baseball-loving cat. And what a game it is! Giraffe winds up at the pitcher's mound, hoping for a strikeout. But with a thwack, ball meets bat and Crocodile is off and running. Can Tiger tag him out at first? He'd better, because Elephant's up next and that will cause a commotion! We're root, root, rooting for the home team - but who's going to win?

Open the book, put on the CD - which contains 2 classic Carly Simon songs, "I Gave My Love a Cherry" and "Scarborough Fair," along with the title song - and give children an unforgettable experience.
