    It is an excellent idea to tell the story of one particular achievement in a 32 page text, given the proper biographical and historical background as this American Graphic biography provides for its readers The text gives a short biography on Babe Ruth, explains how he joined the Yankees, mentions some previous accomplishments, and then focuses on Babe Ruth s historical pursuit of breaking his own world record of 59 home runs The narrative is simple, but effective The vocabulary is varied Students have opportunities to learn new words, and they can practice sequence of events, conflict, and relevant details It is also a baseball story of the golden age of Major League Baseball which makes the story attractive to them It has a glossary, index, and two additional segments about Ruth s further achievements and about how baseball was played The artwork is just excellent I am impressed by the fact that these drawings of Babe Ruth really resemble the ral life person although they are done with simplicity The illustrations almost resemble black and white pictures Highle recommended.
