COOL SPORTS DAD book review and giveaway CLOSED



When I was given the chance to review this book, I honestly wasn't sure if I could even get my husband to look at it. But when it came in, I had him open the package. It caught his attention and he sat and read for a good long time. He covered all the baseball tips before putting it down. He said he'd continue with the rest of it but since he's signed up to assistant coach the boys baseball team, he found the sections with baseball tips extremely helpful!! It's well written and engaging. And because of the source of the different it really carries some weight.
