Baseball is a great way for children to get active in the summer months when they’re out of school, and it has the added benefit of teaching kids a lot of important lessons.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 02, 2015
Summer vacation is an exciting time for most children, who are able to enjoy school being out. But, with television and computers ruling a lot of entertainment for young people, it can be hard to ensure children get the active play they need. Increasingly, playing outside is becoming more like a childhood relic; author and little league coach Kevin Christofora intends to stop that. He has even written a series of children’s baseball books called The Hometown All-Stars series, the most recent of which is the delightful Magic Bat Day.
Magic Bat Day is the perfect book to get children active this summer. Its depiction of baseball, and playing outside in general, is exciting, fun, and makes children want to join in. Christofora’s book is great for a variety of ages: very young kids can strengthen their reading skills while taking advantage of its many games and lessons. Slightly older kids, on the other hand, can begin to learn and appreciate the rules of the game.
Since Magic Bat Day is the second book in The Hometown All-Stars series, children can enjoy it with its predecessor, Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball. Says Christofora, “Baseball is a great way for children to get active in the summer months when they’re out of school, and it has the added benefit of teaching kids a lot of important lessons.” Magic Bat Day makes a perfect summer companion: it will keep kids learning all summer long without feeling as though they’re stuck in a classroom, and encourage them to go outside to play!
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.
