Play Ball! Review and Giveaway
The kiddos and I recently got some awesome new activity books that feature the Chicago Cubs and the super fantastically awesome Chicago White Sox (can you tell which team I root for?).

Once I connected with the artist behind these books (on the Red Sox and other MLB teams), Peg Connery-Boyd, on LinkedIn I asked to do a review of them here on Baseball Reflections not only did she say YES, but when she found out I had a few kids (six to be exact) she sent us three!

Peg Connery-Boyd, at Calvin Burrows Field in Groton, has published a series of children's coloring and activity books, below, featuring several major league baseball teams.
Peg Connery-Boyd has come a long way from drawing pictures of Red Sox players in the attic of her Library Street home in Mystic.

First, it was her coloring books for major league baseball teams such as the Red Sox and Yankees. Now it's one for the U.S. Open tennis tournament, which continues this week in New York City.
Peg Connery-Boyd of Library Street, who secured a license from Major League Baseball two years ago to create a coloring and activity book for all 30 major league clubs, was approached earlier this year by the U.S. Tennis Association, which asked her to create a similar publication for the U.S. Open.
When I was a little kid, coloring books were still really popular. Nowadays, with the spread of the Internet and new forms of electronic entertainment, it seems like books are taking a real hit. Sad to think that, 20 years ago, a nice new book could be someones prized possession for the week, month, or year it takes to complete. In today’s society, kids are using the Internet before they can even understand many of the words on the screen.

Peg Connery-Boyd of Hawk’s Nest Publishing, LLC read my last post on this site (Notes From Rehab), and asked if The World’s Greatest Living Cubs Fan (my dad) and I might like to see the “Cubs Coloring and Activity Book”. I told her we’d be happy to take a look at it.
The next morning two copies arrived on my doorstep via Priority Mail.
I was planning to see my dad later that day, so I took one copy along for him.

While we wait for this afternoon's matchup between the Cubs and Indians, here's a book review for those of you who have school-age and younger children. A startup company, Hawk's Nest Publishing, based in Connecticut, is printing a series of these books for young fans of various teams. So far they have books for the Mets, Red Sox, Yankees and Cubs.
In the summer of 2006, Peg Connery-Boyd went in search of a Red Sox coloring book for her Sox-obsessed 10-year-old, but she came up empty.
"I couldn't find anything hip, she said. "I found a coloring book about the history of baseball, but it wasn't interesting enough for him.
So Connery-Boyd decided to fill the void by creating a kids' activity book of her own.
The Red Sox Coloring and Activity book, published by Hawk's Nest Publishing, is packed with drawings of Sox players, crossword puzzles, word searches, connect-the-dots and trivia for kids 6 and older.
