TGIT was inspired by the actual technique of kids making the letter 'T' with their bodies to learn how to throw; it’s exactly what the doctor ordered.

“Thank goodness it's Friday” and, “TGIF!” are common exclamations at the end of a long week at work or school. But young readers will learn a new variation on this theme, “TGIT” or, “Thank goodness it's T-Ball Day!”, thanks to their friends, the Hometown All-Stars. Every Tuesday and Thursday, the Hometown All-Stars get to to play T-Ball after school. Author Kevin Christofora's Thank Goodness It's T-Ball Day is jam-packed with lessons for young readers.
TGIT is the third book in Christofora's Hometown All-Stars series of children's baseball books. The series aims to teach children important lessons through baseball. TGIT is all about the All-Stars learning how to pitch. Previous installments have covered the All-Stars first practice, warming-up, and batting for the first time while encouraging children to go outside and play.
Christofora brings his expertise as both a baseball fan and certified little league coach into play in each of his books and aims to teach children the values of respect, discipline, and problem solving through baseball, as well as encouraging young readers to play outside. TGIT is a perfect book to reinforce honor, respect, and community both on and off the baseball diamond.
Says Christofora, “TGIT was inspired by the actual technique of kids making the letter “T” with their bodies to learn how to throw; it’s exactly what the doctor ordered.” The books in the 'Hometown All-Stars' series also challenge readers with new words, puzzles, and a baseball-thieving gopher that helps build counting skills. Thank Goodness It’s T-Ball Day is an educational and informative bedtime story that is sure to become a favorite for children and parents alike.
Christofora, a father and little league coach, hopes his books will inspire children to play outside more often. A devotee of America's pastime, he aims to teach young people about baseball and the habits of a healthy lifestyle in the form of a fun and educational bedtime story. He has appeared on ESPN Radio, 660 News Radio, Santa Fe - KVSF 101.5, and WDST-FM Woodstock, and has had articles featured in About Families Online, KidzEdge, Mom Blog Society, and several other publications.
