View all copies of this ISBN edition:

 Baseball, soccer, basketball or hockey, Ben needs to pick one. His parents don't understand that he's terrible. Ben would rather cheer on his big brother, the high school star athlete than let the entire world find out he stinks at all sports.

Video games are more fun. But could Ben's parents be right? Is he spending too much time alone and indoors? What's so bad about that? Why does he need to try out for sports? 

His parents are determined Ben must try out for a team. But Ben fears his summer will end in humiliation.

Is it possible he could find success and make new friends? 

An engaging and entertaining story for young readers, between the ages of 6-9 years old who are bridging the gap from early readers to chapter books. 

Teachwell wrote, "Just when you thought there were no more "funny, poignant, good-for-kids-and-adult books," Jean Cogdell gives us "Tryouts for Ben." Think "Wimpy Kid" with the perspective of Hank Zipzer."
