Growing Up Pedro: How the Martinez Brothers Made It from the Dominican Republic All the Way to the Major Leagues - Matt Tavares

Making it to the Big Leagues is a dream for any baseball player. Sharing this thrill with one’s brother is nearly too good to be true. In the Dominican Republic, Growing Up Pedro (Candlewick, $16.99) meant living in the shadow of Pedro Martinez’s bigger, stronger brother, Ramon, who was drafted by the Dodgers. With sheer determination and tenacity, Pedro followed his brother into the major leagues and eventually became a star pitcher for the Boston Red Sox. Author and illustrator Matt Tavares adds to his hits in baseball literature with this picture book about a recent legendary southpaw, just elected to the hall of fame. Ages 8-12. Renee Bosco
