Play Ball - Creative coloring / activity book

Play Ball! Creative coloring/activity books offer hours of entertainment for young Yankees, Red Sox and Mets fans

MYSTIC, Conn., August 2008 -- For young boys and girls who can't get enough of their favorite baseball teams -- and for parents looking for fun and creative ways to keep their kids entertained -- authors Peg Connery-Boyd and Brendan Fitzgerald have hit a triple with a series of coloring and activity books featuring three popular Major League Baseball teams.

Players from the Boston Red Sox, the New York Yankees, and the New York Mets come alive in three realistically illustrated, high-quality paperback activity books. Each book contains more than 20 hand-drawn images of famous sluggers such as David 'Big Papi' Ortiz, Derek Jeter and David Wright in their characteristic roles--ready and waiting to be colored by baseball fans ages 6 and up. Drawings of Shea Stadium, the Green Monster at historic Fenway Park, and the soon-to-be silent 'House that Ruth Built' add to the book's fun and appeal.

The books are also packed with well-written crossword puzzles, word searches, connect-the-dots games, trivia, and other games and puzzles that challenge and teach kids about their favorite teams, as well as the history and rules of America's favorite pastime. Perfect for long car or plane trips -- or as a welcome alternative to children's 'screen time' -- these coloring/ activity books succeed in being both entertaining and educational.

Created from the heart by mom and artist Peg Connery-Boyd in honor of her baseball-loving sons, these activity books have been licensed by the MLB and the MLB Players Association -- evidence of the books' authenticity. Sure to be a hit with kids long after the season ends in October, all three of these books would make welcome Christmas, Hanukah and birthday gifts all year long.

Red Sox Coloring and Activity Book, Yankees Coloring and Activity Book, and Mets Coloring and Activity Book (each $11.95 U.S.) are available for purchase at Barnes and Noble, Yankee Stadium, Shea Stadium, The Paper Store (Boston area), and at independent bookstores, toy stores and gift stores.
