The Spirt in Baseball
The Spirit in Baseball
by Kathryn Nixon & Ava Boudreau
The Spirit in Baseball is a children's book about the Fruit of the Spirit and examples of how it is shown to others in baseball. Each trait has a two-page spread with colorful illustrations and the example of how to demonstrate a Christ-like attitude in the game of baseball.
This book would be a great gift to a child who enjoys playing on their local baseball or t-ball team. A really fun little addition to the book is the hidden fruit picture in each of the traits. There is a page near the end of the book by Trot Nixon, a professional baseball player and 2004 Boston Red Sox World Series Champion. Mr. Nixon is married to Kathryn. There is also a Baseball Prayer and a page for autographs that would be fun for the child to have their team sign.
I was provided a free copy of this book for the purposes of review, the opinions expressed are my own.
