Summary

Summary

Bobby changes from an "easy out" to a game-winning hitter with the help of a friend and a lot of hard work.


Summary

With lessons on practice and perseverance, this is the perfect beginning reader for kids who love baseball!

Bobby loves baseball. He can run the bases fast. He can slide. He can catch the ball.

But he has never hit the ball.

A lucky bat won't do the trick--though with hard work and determination, Bobby might just hit a home run.

Full of charming illustrations and simple text by Leonard Kessler, this Level Two I Can Read is for readers who have begun reading on their own, but still need a little help.

Booklist Review

Gr. 1-2. First published in 1965, this old favorite with beginning readers concerns a boy who can't hit a baseball until he follows the advice of a friend: "Lucky helmets won't do it. Lucky bats won't do it. Only hard work will do it." Though the original edition sounded better, with its more memorable "Lucky hats won't do it. Lucky bats won't do it," obviously being safe is more important than being pithy. Other changes include girls on the baseball teams and full-color illustrations replacing the old two-tone ones. Still a winner. ~--Carolyn Phelan
