This is a wonderful book for children and adults as well. I would say this is a book best read with your child especially for ages 7 and under. It's a book that you will have on your coffee table for years to come. My son particularly enjoyed learning about each of the different players and their nicknames. This book was a great way for children to learn about segregation and the struggles African America baseball players had playing in the Negro League. The illustrations are amazing and the history about baseball, civil rights and Negro League was educational.
