Timberdoodle's Review
Jackie Robinson: Baseball's Great Pioneer
Jackie Robinson was the first African American since 1884 to play Major League baseball outside of a segregated black league. As a result, he faced much ugliness that most Americans would like to forget.

The Jackie Robinson: Baseball's Great Pioneer graphic novel gives your child a peek into the difficulties Jackie encountered with white authorities because of their rampant racism. It also shows that his preferred response was his fiery temper. But at age 28, Jackie was finally offered a place playing in the major baseball league by promising to hold his sharp tongue and quick fists in exchange for the opportunity to break organized baseball's color barrier. The Jackie Robinson graphic novel tells how Jackie became one of the most historically significant baseball players, changing the way Americans think about black athletes forever.

Fun book!

My almost 8 year old son loves books about sports, so this is his current fave. I love that he’s learning about history, too! Any time he’s excited about a book, it’s a win!
