My great-great-grandfather helped baseball become America’s favorite pastime, and today I work to help keep the noble sport thriving among its children.
New York, New York (PRWEB) May 15, 2015
As the weather gets warmer and the days the sun shines far outnumber those that it doesn’t, it’s clear that summer is arriving and with it, baseball. With this year’s season already underway, dedicated fans are already flocking to the stadium or tuning in to watch games on TV. Kevin Christofora’s children’s baseball book, Magic Bat Day, is a great summer companion for young children who are just learning the sport.
Magic Bat Day is a new addition to Christofora’s The Hometown All-stars series. These fun and interactive stories help teach children important life lessons while encouraging them to be active. Children can follow the progress of the Hometown All-Stars team while learning easy exercises, basic math, and even doing fun puzzles. The educational aspect of the books makes them great bedtime reading, and reflects the many skills children can learn through playing baseball, including teamwork and strategic thinking.
Magic Bat Day was inspired by author Kevin Christofora’s great-great-grandfather, who was a baseball player in the 1890s and played the game while it was still evolving. Just as the children in the story must pick a bat to learn to hit with, Christofora’s ancestor had a bat: an ivory one, now an heirloom. Says Christofora, “My great-great-grandfather helped baseball become America’s favorite pastime, and today I work to help keep the noble sport thriving among its children.”
Magic Bat Day is a delightful story that can help introduce children of all ages to baseball while the season progresses this summer.
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.
