Brothers at Bat

Brothers at Bat: The True Story of an Amazing All-Brother Baseball Team by Audrey Vernick is a new picture book I picked up at the library this week.  It tells the true story of the twelve Acerra brothers who lived in New Jersey in the 1920s and 30s.  This picture book would be great for baseball fans of all ages.  It could also be used with students to help them better understand what life was like during that time period.  The illustrations by Steven Salerno are great, reminding me some of the illustrating styles of Virginia Burton and H.A. Rey.
