    I enjoyed reading this biography about Babe Ruth to Aiden I m not much of a baseball fan, so I wasn t familiar with Babe Ruth s story It was a very inspiring story about how a troubled, poor young boy who was able to turn his life around with his love of baseball and a structured upbringing in the orphanage In the story, Babe mentions how much he hopes to make his parents proud of him I was disappointed that the author didn t mention Babe s parents reaction when he became a professional bas I enjoyed reading this biography about Babe Ruth to Aiden I m not much of a baseball fan, so I wasn t familiar with Babe Ruth s story It was a very inspiring story about how a troubled, poor young boy who was able to turn his life around with his love of baseball and a structured upbringing in the orphanage In the story, Babe mentions how much he hopes to make his parents proud of him I was disappointed that the author didn t mention Babe s parents reaction when he became a professional baseball player

    This biography is so poorly written that it should be taken off the shelves This entire series of biographies is outdated and in need of weeding The historical figures speak as if in their own historical fiction story Gee whiz language and bad plot lines make this practically useless for learning valuable, biographical information about Babe Ruth or anyone else this series covers.Please do not waste your time with these biographies.

    Childhood of famous Americans Babe Ruth This biography of baseball player Babe Ruth s childhood, was fabulous, it told of what Babes early childhood was like, his time at St Mary s reform school, and a few clips of his baseball career The book was , oh, 95% nonfiction because it had some true moments of Babe s life but the dialogue, most of it , is not realistic, but still, a book that was hard to put down.

    I liked the book and it told me some things I did not know about Babe Ruth before reading this book and to me it was over all a good book.

    This book was good, not great, but it was good It skips around Babe Ruth s life from childhood until death The book skips around far periods of time sometimes I wish the author would ve addedexcitement into the book, sometimes I felt like it was dry I did however, find myself wanting to learnabout Babe Ruth after reading this book Overall I thought this was a good book and I would encourage others to read it.

    After having read Becoming Babe Ruth to my students, I was personally interested in readingabout the baseball great This was a good next book, though I wish I d read it earlier, it providesbackground as to why Ruth s parents left him at St Mary s School for Boys I think between the two, I now want to keep reading about him he seems rather fascinating.

    This book tells all about Babe Ruth starting with his childhood and so on I think this is a great book for kids to read because the words are big and there a pictures in it Most chapter books do not have pictures, so I think young readers will enjoy them.
