As the littlest and youngest on the Robins, Mo is teased by the rival team for being a “butterfingers” but he's still a team player and gives it his all. DON’T THROW IT TO MO! is a wonderful story of diversity, acceptance, embracing differences, and it shows what a positive impact caring and compassionate mentors and adults can make in a child’s life. DON’T THROW IT TO MO! has an early second grade readability and a lexile of 270L. It was also a winner of the 2016 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award.
The smallest on his team and always the last to bat, Mo is a committed baseball player who's passionate about the game. Ever faithful to his team and the game but never getting a real chance to play, Mo is up to bat in the last inning of the game. He's nervous as can be but something pretty magical happens. GET A HIT, MO! has a late first grade readability with a lexile of 220L. Both of these early readers were written by David A. Adler, illustrated by Sam Ricks and published by Penguin Young Readers.
