Reviews - What do customers think about Babe Ruth: One of Baseball's Greatest (Childhood of Famous Americans)?

Review from an 11 year old Catholic homeschooler  May 7, 2007
The book "Babe Ruth One of Baseball's Greatest" is a spectacular 5 star book. It tells of George Ruth from age 7 till his death. It depicths him at St.Marys school, where he first learned Baseball. It's where he won his first Championship and the academy game. At that game a Baltimore Baseball scout saw him pitch and was amazed, he reported about George to the owner of the Baltimore Oriels. One afternoon George and his friend Rod were having a catch. George was pitching, Rod was catching when they saw a man walking with the brothers who run the school. They called George in, the man was the Baltimore Oriels manager and he wanted George to play for them. This is where he got the name Babe since he was so young. Thus the career of Babe Ruth began. If you love Baseball and it's heroes you'll love this book.
Awesome  Nov 18, 2006
It was a really great book. I learned a lot about Babe Ruth. A lot I didn't know - all about him growing up and what his childhood was like.
It was really informative and I really enjoyed reading it.
Great book for baseball lovers  Jun 6, 2001
I remember this reading this book in 7th grade and i will never forget it. It was writen with pride and dignity you felt that the great BAMBINO was a hero and he was to most people. I really recommend this book to baseball lovers and people who are interested with this topic. Oh Guernsey Van Riper and Seymour Fleishman did a excellent job writting and illustrating this book.
Babe Ruth- An All American Hero  Apr 1, 2001
I read this book a couple years ago, but haven't forgot it. It's great if you like learning about sports heros or baseball. I remember most baseball stuff. I even remember that 1 month after his first wife died in an apartment fire, Babe Ruth married again. I learned that from this book. Would you like to learn more? Then buy this book!!!
