Jenny and Joanna wake up ready for a normal school day. But as they rub their eyes, they hear Grandma's voice at the door. Grandma says, 'Sometimes, some things are more important than school.' When Mom and Dad hear the plan, they agree, but Grandma won't tell the girls what the big surprise is. Their journey takes them out to breakfast, on the subway, and eventually to a baseball stadium to see a real game and to sing America's favorite song, 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame.' This book is full of beautiful illustrations that show just what we love most about baseball, from the peanuts, to the players, to the seventh inning stretch, to the last out. Jenny and Joanna discover that just this once, baseball (and of course, spending time with Grandma) is much more important than school. This book is perfect for anyone who loves the game of baseball or who wants to learn 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame'.
