The Kid From Diamond Street: The Extraordinary Story of Baseball Legend Edith Houghton by Audrey Vernick and Steven Salerno
Grades: 2-4
Rating: ♦♦♦♦

We really enjoyed this book about a strong-willed and talented kid who not only got to play in a professional women’s team but also traveled to Japan to play in games throughout the country. We had some great conversations about gender roles throughout history and cultural differences between the US and Japan.
We received a review copy of this book from the publisher.
