The Story
The Zippity Zinger, Hank Zipzer #4—Book Review

In this fourth book of the series, Hank is the first to admit he's not such a great baseball player. But after a lot of practice with Grandpa, Hanks finds himself improving. It must be his lucky socks! When he decides to become the pitcher for his baseball team, he just hopes those lucky socks keep working their magic.
The Scoop
The Zippity Zinger, Hank Zipzer #4—Book Review
{spoiler alert}

Hank is a positive role model for kids with learning disabilities, and is supported by a culturally diverse and encouraging network of friends, family, and neighbors. In this book, he realizes that his improvement in baseball was due to practice, not from a lucky pair of socks. Throughout the story, Hank acknowledges his academic and attention difficulties, and is committed to using various recommended techniques to help his concentration (such as listening to headphones while he studies for tests, and doing deep yoga breaths when he feels anxious). Hanks perseveres even when something is hard for him, and is rewarded for this effort. A naughty boy engages in name calling (zit-face).
