The babe and i by david adler
The Babe & I by David A. AdlerI would have to give this story four stars because it really touched my heart. It talked about a real issue like the great depression and showed you what a father will do to keep their family stable. The characters were obviously fictional although it is possible this has happened before. My only criticism would be the title The Babe and I. It really made me think Babe Ruth was going to be a bigger character in this story then he actually was. There was little Babe Ruth interaction with the main characters but it was still a great story.
