The Ballpark Mysteries are an early chapter book series aimed at young sports fans. Each book is set in a different American baseball park and includes a fun fact page called “Dugout Notes” about each one. Thanks to our sponsor for providing us with review copies and a 2-book giveaway for our readers!
The Ballpark Mysteries are the perfect chapter books for kids who love whodunit type books and baseball action. The series is geared toward boys and girls ages 6 to 9 years old. We like how the books blend fictional stories with non-fiction facts about major league baseball. The challenge of solving a mystery plus the nicely-paced story action holds young readers’ attention from beginning to end.
The latest book in the Ballpark Mysteries series is CHRISTMAS IN COOPERSTOWN (Super Special Book #2)
