The Hometown All Stars Logo

Everything Mommyhood has teamed up with Bloggin Mamas and a handful of other bloggers to introduce to you this great new book series that will help your children want to get outside and play!! I know my girls wanted to learn how to place baseball right after reading these books!


The Hometown All Stars is a book series for children that focuses on teaching early sports skills along with interactive, educational activities, and more importantly – fun! Kids ages 3-7 years old and parents, teachers, librarians, and others who want to promote “Less Screen, More Green” and get kids outside and active again! The Hometown All Stars series is also for parents who don’t know much about baseball and want to be ahead of the curve when their kids begin to play, for sports enthusiasts looking for a book that doesn’t involve talking animals to read at bedtime to their children, and for anyone interested in promoting the love of baseball and sports overall to a new generation.

Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball

Nick's Very First Day of Baseball

Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball teaches children about baseball using real coaching techniques. In this interactive storybook, kids will find hidden baseballs in the pictures, answer trivia questions, and there’s even a page for autographs from their favorite players. Fun, interactive and educational.

We read this story with the neighbors next door as they have little boys and all of our kids loved it! Our kids are ages 3-7, and we have two girls. By the end of the book, all 4 of our kids wanted to learn how to play baseball, and they wanted to go see a baseball game!

Magic Bat Day

Magic Bat Day Cover
Magic Bat Day is the first real practice after the Hometown All Stars get their uniforms. Batting is the most fun of all skills and drills! This book concept shows techniques of how to hold the bat and where to stand. Most importantly, it shows that every kid can find their own ‘magic’ bat and the magic within themselves to hit the ball!

After reading this book with our neighbor friends, they were ready to play baseball! They wanted to go to the store to find their magic bat and get a game started up right away!!!

    I love reading and Barnes and Noble is the place to go. What a great book selection and I can view them at my leisure. Thank you so much for sharing this great bookstore

  2. I would like to read Magic Bat Day most. I am all about less screen and more green. Some days they want to be outside all day and some days they want to watch tv all day or play tablets. I am for green time.

  3. I appreciate books that encourage outdoor activity and good sportsmanship! My older son is just learning to read on his own and it’s very exciting. I love reading, and am saving up for a Nook right now.

  4. Barnes and Noble is an amazing store, I absolutely LOVE browsing it online and off. If i had to pick ONE book, it would be ‘Magic Bat Day’ as it looks super cute! I’d be donating it to my local library as it’s a small town little place and I’m absolutely SURE they’d love it!

  5. I like the ‘Hometown All-Stars,’ Series. That is because it is so interesting. Great reading about the summer all year long.

    I love the idea of Magic Bat Day. It would have been a great book to my boys when they were younger. It was hard to get them to read but they loves to play baseball.

    I would love to have this to read to/with my great grandson and my great granddaughter. They are outside kids and I believe they would love the whole story line. Then we could toss some baseballs.

  14. Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball would have been great for my boys when they were younger. It would have calmed their nerves about the new experience.

  28. I’d like to read Nick’s Very First Day of Baseball. It sounds like a great book to teach kids all about how to play. My husband grew up playing baseball but I know little of the sport so it would also be helpful for me to learn it so I can help my son get outside and play.

    Magic Bat Day seems an excellent choice of book to help explain the sport of baseball. My husband and I are huge baseball fans!!! (Go Reds)But teaching our boys how to play and all the rules that follow can be challenging. It’s great that someone put it into words when I can’t!
