About the Author:

Sharon Robinson, daughter of baseball legend Jackie Robinson, is the author of several works of fiction and nonfiction. She has also written several widely praised nonfiction books about her father, including JACKIE'S NINE: BECOMING YOUR BEST SELF and PROMISES TO KEEP: HOW JACKIE ROBINSON CHANGED AMERICA.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6-8-This personal tribute by a daughter to her famous father is meant to inspire young readers. Topics include courage, determination, teamwork, persistence, integrity, citizenship, justice, commitment, and excellence. Each chapter begins with a reflection by Sharon Robinson on her own life and then is followed by speeches, columns, and writings extolling the values of other role models. Some of the selections are from Jackie Robinson's autobiography; others include Carl Rowan's piece on the courage of the "Kentucky colonel," Pee Wee Reese; Brian Lanker on Oprah Winfrey; Bob Greene on Michael Jordan; and Christopher Reeve writing about himself. While the audience seems to be young people, at times the context seems more for adults. Marian Wright Edelman's essay on parents as mentors will not have wide appeal to young people. The book is full of warm duotone photographs, seemingly taken from the family picture album. Unfortunately, they are often hazy or lacking in contrast. However, the book does remind readers that there is still much to learn from Jackie Robinson, and it would be of value in ethics classes as well as to teachers interested in presenting materials on role models.
