In the past, younger students who liked to read nonfiction were often faced with reading books that were far above their reading level. Although non-fiction, the books read more like a story, which also adds to their appeal. This would be a good book to use in the fall in a multidisciplinary unit: read the nonfiction account of his life, talk about statistics and averages in math, have students find out more about the history of baseball or the time period in social studies, etc.

Babe Ruth was not always an idol. He grew up in a poor family and definitely gave them a run for their money. This biography takes you threw Babe Ruth's life from birth to death, and all of his challenges and accomplishes in between. All of the books in this series provide a great simplistic approach to informational text. A perfect fit for young readers or struggling readers. I am currently using this with my 4th graders to explore biographies and how to dissect the information.
I love the time Babe Ruth was not always an idol. I love the timeline included at the end! Highly recommend for all elementary classrooms! Mar 02, Kaleb Munro rated it it was amazing. Who was Babe Ruth by Joan Hulb. This book is about a legendary baseball player named Babe Ruth, Babe was a baseball legend in the ss he broke every batting record that existed he was a inspiring player to watch in that time. But what is his story?
Babe Ruth in my opinion is one of the best baseball players of all time he could hit pitch and run bases. With a legend in the making who knew Babe was going to grow up and become the greatest baseball player of all time. I recommend this book to baseball fans and for people who need a easy read but want to learn more about sports. I enjoyed this book and learned a lot about this baseball legend. What I really was impressed with was that the author was very objective. She told the good and the bad. She did not make him out to be a saint. He had faults and they caught up with him at times and affected his career and personal life, including his marriage.
I think that balance is good in biographies. Kids need to know people are not perfect. People can still inspire us to greatness even with flaws. I think kids wil pages. I think kids will enjoy this one. Highly recommended for Grades Apr 16, Ashton Temple rated it it was amazing. May 19, Adam N rated it really liked it.

I have always liked baseball but not enough to go to a bunch of games and Babe Ruth has convinced me of the importance of baseball. I didn't like when he would keep returning to getting drunk and partying all night and playing the next day. I liked that he got to learn and excel at baseball through the orphanage. I didn't like that he was divorced, that shouldn't have to happen to a marriage, but I liked this book because of all the movies made out of it I never knew that it was so captivating.
I didn't like that he was divorced, that shouldn't have to happen to a marriage, but he found someone new that he loved. It was sad to have him die but he died watching baseball on the television. I recommend this book to people that want to come across some new knowledge and learn about someone that got us through the war. I also like that he was a funny guy a prankster. He also was a bad kid so he got sent a place were bad kids go to. I highly recommed this book. You would learn more about Babe Ruth.

Nov 27, Alicia Cantu rated it really liked it Shelves: children-s-lit. This biography goes about the life of Babe Ruth in a fun and interesting way.
It will keep children interested in what comes next in his life and how he got to where he got with baseball. Reading about his journey in text that isn't small and boring is a good way to teach children about how he lived his life and started his career. Genre: Biography Grade: 1st and higher.
