Description

Product Description

As a kid, Jackie Robinson loved sports. And why not? He was a natural at football, basketball, and, of course, baseball. But beyond athletic skill, it was his strength of character that secured his place in sports history. In 1947 Jackie joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking the long-time color barrier in major league baseball. It was tough being first- not only did "fans" send hate mail but some of his own teammates refused to accept him. Here is an inspiring sports biography, with black-and-white illustrations throughout.

This book was on the reading list at school. I bought it on Amazon because it was much less expensive here than at local bookstore. We read the book together at home. It was amazing to me that a third grader had never heard of Jackie Robinson because my generation heard about him all the time, even if it was only in comparison! He had stopped playing before I was born but sports announcers still used his name when other great players came along. It is wonderful that we have books like this to teach our children about the history of sports and famous players. The book is well written and talks about Jackie''s life and growing up, as well as his sports accomplishments and why he was so important to the sport of baseball. The book is written for children but our entire family enjoyed reading it.

My children read the book and learned a great deal. It’s like History written for children between the ages of 7 and 12. We order a few of these books when schools were closed - during the Corona pandemic as a way to continue their education.
