Children's Literature
Books for young people are literature, too!
Welcome to the Children's Literature!
I noticed that there were several communities on Lunch.com revolving around books, but not that focused on children's books. This community should fix that. It should focus mostly on children's and young adult books.

There are lots of joke books about baseball and bats, so it seemed natural that there should be a children's book about a baseball game played by bats. Told in rhyming couplets and stanzas, BATS AT THE BALLGAME tells about …
