Who Was Jackie Robinson?

Superb athlete and civil rights “first”. Ages 8-11 105 pages.



Easy reading chapter book for children about this barrier-breaking athlete. “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.” (supplier) Ages 8-11 years 105 pages
