Additional Notes

From The Publisher*A companion to the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award-winning Don't Throw It to Mo!

Mo Jackson is a small boy with a big passion for sports. He may not be the biggest, the fastest, or the strongest kid on the team, but he won't let that stop him from playing!

Baseball season has arrived and Mo is all set to play with his team, the Lions. But Mo always bats last, and he always plays right field-and no balls ever come to right field. Will Mo ever get his chance to help the Lions win?

Review Quote*Reviews for Get a Hit, Mo!:

"The text is appropriately simple, yet Adler cunningly coaxes emerging readers to use their understanding of narrative conventions and their prediction skills to make savvy inferences. African-American Mo and his multiethnic, mixed-gender, woman-coached team make for a nicely inclusive read." – Kirkus Reviews
