Bette Levine Releases Second in Talking Baseball Series
Author and baseball fan Bette Levine continues her popular Talking Baseball series with the second book, "So Long Talking Baseball" (published by AuthorHouse). This time, Jake and Noah meet a little girl with a very serious illness.
"I always felt that children learn a great deal in participating," Levine says. "With good experiences, they will carry them over into their growing up years."
Jake and Noah have spent many afternoons playing baseball with their talking baseball, but one day, a particularly hard hit sends the ball over the fence and into the backyard of a little girl. The boys hop the fence and meet Samantha, a young girl diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) who has lost the ability to walk. Her story touches Jake and Noah, and they decide to let the talking ball stay with Samantha to encourage her to exercise.
Levine wants to bring awareness about MS and other diseases to children. "Baseball participation seemed to be an ideal method of accomplishing my goal," she says. "Catch a child's attention first, then expose them to someone with a disease that needs understanding, attention and sometimes even help."
