It’s the beginning of the baseball season, and Charlie Brown’s team is losing sixty-three to zero. Good grief! Linus reminds Charlie Brown that he can’t always win, but that doesn’t make Charlie Brown feel any better. Is there really something better in baseball than winning?
Based on original comic strips, this classic Peanuts theme is sure to resonate with young readers. The book has a special section at the back that includes information on the rules of baseball, Charles M. Schulz’s words of wisdom about losing, and more!
