Jenny and Joanna love their imaginative and exciting grandmother. It's hard to guess what Grandma is going to do next. But this time, when the old lady arrives to take them to an outing, Jenny and Joanna are really puzzled. Their parents protest. It's a school day! What could be more important than school? But Grandma won't take no for an answer. And with the promise, "Just this once," she whisks them off to Yankee Stadium for an unforgettable afternoon at the ballgame. Set to the lyrics of the seventh-inning-stretch baseball anthem, Take Me Out to the Ballgame is an exuberant romp. Preschoolers and early readers will sing along as they share in the excitement of banners, hot dogs, a roaring crowd, rooting for the home team - all part of the glory that is baseball. A perfect book for beginner readers, boisterous singers, and all future fans of America's favourite sport.
