We loves books in this house! Every night is reading night so when I introduced my daughter to The Hometown All Stars she loved them immediately! She especially the loved the questions at the end of the story! Billy Ball was so much fun to follow along!

The Hometown All Stars is a book series for children that focuses on teaching early sports skills along with interactive, educational activities, and more importantly – fun! Kids ages 3-7 years old and parents, teachers, librarians, and others who want to promote “Less Screen, More Green” and get kids outside and active again! The Hometown All Stars series is also for parents who don’t know much about baseball and want to be ahead of the curve when their kids begin to play, for sports enthusiasts looking for a book that doesn’t involve talking animals to read at bedtime to their children, and for anyone interested in promoting the love of baseball and sports overall to a new generation.

Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball

Nick's Very First Day of Baseball

Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball teaches children about baseball using real coaching techniques. In this interactive storybook, kids will find hidden baseballs in the pictures, answer trivia questions, and there’s even a page for autographs from their favorite players. Fun, interactive and educational.

Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball was entertaining along with teaching my daughter about the actual rules of baseball. Em loved the questions at the end of the story! 

Magic Bat Day

Magic Bat Day Cover
Magic Bat Day is the first real practice after the Hometown All Stars get their uniforms. Batting is the most fun of all skills and drills! This book concept shows techniques of how to hold the bat and where to stand. Most importantly, it shows that every kid can find their own ‘magic’ bat and the magic within themselves to hit the ball!

Magic Bat Day helped my daughter to learn the correct way to hold a bat. Since I’m not a baseball gal, it really helped me to help her! Bravo Hometown AllStars! The characters are easy to relate to and Billy Ball is awesome!

Walkers Shortbread and Valentine’s Day Perfect Together

Walkers Shortbread and Valentine’s Day Go Perfect Together


February is one of my favorite months of the year. It’s the month that Valentine’s Day fall in, the month in which I got engaged, and the month when I had my very first baby. Tic Tac Toe, it will always be a month that signifies love to me. With saying that I am always on the hunt for some yummy Valentine treats. Hubby is a total fan of Walkers Shortbread. This year I saw an awesome idea of taking the round and fingers and creating x’s and o’s. How adorable! To be honest with you, my samples arrived and were not tagged by me, “Do not eat”. One guess what happened, right? G-O-N-E! Well, I was going to give them to hubby anyway, but I would have liked to make the x’s and o’s for him first! Anyway, it only goes to show you just how delicious Walkers Shortbread really is.
