Take Me Out to the Yakyu

by Aaron Meshon

Published by Athenium, 2013
36 pages
ISBN: 978𢴒424-41774

Ages 3-6

A love of baseball spans two countries in this volume which compares and contrasts a child抯 experience taking in a ballgame at the stadium with his American pop pop with watching yakyu at the dome with his Japanese ji ji. Each double-page spread uses color and placement to clearly distinguish between the two countries. Pre-game anticipation and post-game satisfaction are universal, while souvenirs, food concessions, and audience cheers are distinctive to each locale. Supplementary material offers an English/Japanese glossary and fascinating facts about differences in the game by country. A two-dimensional flat style of illustration creates a visual ambiance that feels simultaneously retro and contemporary.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
