Other products from THE STRAIGHT EDGE INC.
For the next generation of baseball fans (and for current fans who supervise their bath times), the new Take Me Out to the Ball Game musical, waterproof Rub a Dub™ bath book by The Straight Edge will be a hit (pun intended).
When you press the center of the baseball on the cover, the music plays to the famous melody (written by Albert Von Tilzer in 1908). The little 5-1/2" book (a good size for small hands) has the lyrics to the chorus (written by Jack Norworth while he was riding a subway to a baseball game in 1908). The clever and colorful illustrations of baseball diamonds, crowds, and fans are by children's illustrator, Irena Romendik. They are sure to make you a big fan of the book, the song and the game and you as your child root, root, root you way through any bath time.
