Summerland: Reviewed

Author:Michael Chabon
Reading Level (Conceptual):Children 5 and under
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Children 8 and up
Year of publication:2002

Very long tribute to the magical powers of baseball to heal divisions between people and damage to the Earth. Intense enough so that my daughter who is not exceptionally interested in baseball kept having to check back with me to reassure herself that the story really would end in a satisfactory way (happily, that is).
It also kept her intensely interested, and it gave her a new -- awe for -- the concept of the "Coyote".
