A classic American song comes to life in this musical board book.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game was written in 1908 by Jack Norworth, who, ironically, wouldn't attend his first ball game until more than 30 years later. Throughout the years, fans would spontaneously break into song at games, but it is famed announcer Harry Caray, who is credited with creating the seventh-inning stretch sing-along. Caray, who would sing to himself during breaks, was broadcast over a hidden mike, and soon the whole park had joined in, and a tradition was born.

Now, this favourite summertime tune can be heard simply by opening the cover of this sturdy board book. The song plays once each time the book is opened, and children and their parents will soon find themselves singing along. This delightfully illustrated combination of book and tune will be a hit with young baseball fans across the country. Ages 2-5.
