Brothers at Bat is a charming, inspiring family history that will fascinate young baseball fans. The story and vintage-style illustrations of a dozen brothers sleeping two to a bed, forming a team, and going off to war together sets this unique story in its period, so history lovers will enjoy the book as well. Most important, the Acerras exemplify real "family values" of kindness, citizenship, and good sportsmanship, which will encourage youngsters to be kinder siblings and better teammates.
