I Hope I Don't Strike Out!

And Other Funny Sports Poems

by Stephen Carpenter

Hardback Publication Date: 01/02/2008

 
I Hope I Don't Strike Out is the first major anthology of funny poems about sports. It was designed to motivate sports-loving boys and girls to read by focusing on the funny side of sports. It covers all major sports in which kids participate, including baseball, football, basketball, soccer, swimming, skiing, running, karate, golf, volleyball, and dodgeball. Kids will love poems that serve up "the inside scoop" on how catchers make batters take their eyes off the ball, how nervous batters hit fastballs they can't even see, blood-curdling cheers that cause opponents to run home to their mommies, what to expect your first day at karate school, what not to pack for a ski trip, and how to score the winning goal in a kindergarten soccer game. In all, 22 of the funniest sports poems ever published by Lansky and his all-star team of Giggle Poets are sure to have kids laughing while they sit on the bench, waiting for a starter to foul out. iParenting Media Awards 2008 Excellent Product Winner: Poetry USABookNews.com 2008 FINALIST: Poetry: Anthologies Teachers' Choice Awards (TCA) 2009 Teachers' Choice Awards for the Family: Children's Books WINNER in Learning Magazine Teachers' Choice Awards for the Family: Children's Books
