Those familiar with Rafe Esquith will recognize much of the content in this book. But his advice is so valuable it certainly does not hurt to be repeated. The clever thing about this book is the layout. Esquith, a devoted baseball fan, tells the story of bringing five of his students to a Dodgers game. Each chapter revolves around of the nine innings and highlights related lessons associated with each stage of the game. His primary focus is teaching children to be of strong moral character, something desperately needed in today’s world. He cites many literary and cinematic books to be used in conjunction with such lessons. What could possibly be wrong with a man who looks up to one Atticus Finch?
