My Review:

Thank you to Netgalley and Capstone Young Readers for giving me a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a review.

Baseball and food go hand in hand like hot dogs and mustard. Ballpark Eats is a fantastic cookbook, perfect for kids of all ages. Each chapter highlights a baseball stadium and three regional recipes. From the Boston hot dog at Fenway to the cheddar-bacon stuffed burger at Target Field, each recipe is easy to make with simple instructions kids can follow. The cookbook is filled with full-color photographs and graphics, which kids will love, too.

My favorite part, though, is the fun trivia and quizzes throughout the book. The Condiment Quiz was fun as was the Mustard Bullpen.

As a baseball and food lover, I loved this book! I highly recommend it and it makes a fantastic gift.
