86 Years: The Legend of the Boston Red Sox, by Melinda Boroson.
A beautifully-illustrated children's book which starts with Great-Grandpa watching the Red Sox in 1918 and celebrates in detail the 2004 victory from the playoffs through the Duck Boat parade. It's recommended for ages 4-8, but my friend's 3-year-old already enjoys picking out Curt Schilling, Jason Varitek, and Johnny Damon in the pictures. I liked it so much I bought another copy for myself! This book makes a great keepsake and will be enjoyed by fans of any age.
