The 2014 All-Star Game will kick off at Target Field in a few weeks, making now the perfect time to drop some Twins knowledge on our state’s youngest fan base. Local children's boutique Pacifier stocks a few wonderfully sturdy board books to make it happen.
The kids have to learn those ABCs somehow. If you’re tiring of the “A is for apple” variety, you can try Minnesota Twins ABC. A is for American League.
Next, you can pore over the busy pages of Minnesota Twins 101. It’s a primer on essential Twins baseball history and culture, from team legends such as Carew and Killebrew (not just a root beer) to winning methods for eating a hot dog while simultaneously waving a Homer Hanky. You’ll be so proud.
Minnesota Twins ABC, $11.95, and Minnesota Twins 101, $10.95. Available at Pacifier, several metro locations, including 40 S. 7th St., Ste. 260, Mpls., 612-767-6330
