From the Inside Flap:

Baseball has endured as one of our most cherished American institutions for nearly a century and a half. It is a shared treasure that continues to bond one generation to the next, and its rhythms and vocabulary are embedded in our consciousness at an early age.

And St. Louis, with its rich history and eternally passionate fans, has long been considered the quintessential baseball town. The members of Cardinal Nation wear their colors with pride and unwavering loyalty, and the storied history of baseball's greatest franchise is passed along with the same kind of zeal. For the Love of the Cardinals presents a unique opportunity to celebrate that legacy and to recapture its magic. Longtime Wall Street Journal columnist Frederick C. Klein and renowned artist Mark Anderson have collaborated to create the perfect vehicle to introduce young fans to the Cardinals immortals. Each letter of the alphabet is assigned to one or more St. Louis baseball icons, which are characterized by brilliant illustrations, witty poems, and brief summaries of their places in Cardinals history.

Names like Musial, Gibson, Brock, and Pujols are brought to life on these colorful pages, which provide a loving, educational way to initiate the next generation of Cards fans.
