Review: You Never Heard of Sandy Koufax?! by Jonah Winter

Children's book on Sandy Koufax
is a grand slam read
for baseball fans of ALL ages!

"You Never Heard of Sandy Koufax?" is a picture book biography about the greatest left-handed pitcher of all time. This book takes you through Koufax's early life and his years with the Dodgers (the good and bad years), eventually moving onto his peak years and early retirement.

"You Never Heard of Sandy Koufax?" delivers a good overview of Koufax’s incredible story. It is chock-full of baseball statistics, which are all nicely placed along the sides of the book. Andre Carrilho's art was perfect. Though simple in design and color scheme, it leaves an impact. I think the reflective cover is cool and very eye-catching. "You Never Heard of Sandy Koufax?" is perfect for parents and grandparents to share with their young baseball fans.

Please Note: Due to all the statistics, children 4-8 (which the book is geared towards) would benefit from the book being read to them.
