Book Summary:

When Gary’s father is too busy to play, a scary moment at the baseball field brings his dad rushing to the park to rescue him. But instead the two discover that making time for each other is the most important thing in a father and son relationship.

Gary’s Gray World is a picture book that reminds us what is really important in life – spending time with family. Gary’s dad is too busy with work and misses the annual father and son baseball game leaving Gary feeling disappointed and ultimately alone. A misunderstanding brings Gary’s dad rushing to the ball field where he realizes spending time with Gary is the most important thing.

This book has a cut & pasted feel to it. Pictures on one page, writing on another. One of the pictures is grainy making it look like a smaller image was enlarged too much. Several times the same image is used more than once and has just been cropped.

Rating: 3 Stars – Worth reading if you have the time
