Great Baseball Books with Units
to Guide Literature Circles 

Most of these sports books are in your library! (If can't find them, you can order them by clicking the title below.) They represent many genres! Check out two or three copies of each for your class. Let students choose their favorites and form literature groups. Give them copies of the unit to guide them to find the special treasure inside each book, to develop valuable skills, to problem solve, and to help them work together as a group! Sports are strong in character and can reach many "unreachable" children!
