9780440400196: The Story of Jackie Robinson: Bravest Man in Baseball (Dell Yearling Biography)

Today many children dream of playing professional  baseball. Perhaps you are one of them. If you have  good athletic skills and you work hard, your dream  may be realized. But this wasn't always true for  athletes in the first part of this century. More  was required. A player had to be white. Black  players--no matter how well they could hit, catch, or  throw--were not signed up by the major  leagues.
One brave black player named Jackie Robinson  worked to change the "rules," so that  all races could have the opportunity to fulfill  their dreams on the baseball diamond--or anywhere.  This is Jackie Robinson's story.

About the Author:

Margaret Davidson is a prolific author of biographical books for children. Her books for Yearling include The Story of Jackie RobinsonThe Story of Benjamin Franklin, and The Story of Alexander Graham Bell. She has also written for the Scholastic Biography series and Little Apple Nonfiction.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5 To those who have read Jackie Robinson: Pro-Baseball's First Black Star (Creative Education, 1974; o.p.) by James T. Olsen or any of the dozen other biographies of this sports figure, a familiar story is recounted here. Testimonials from family and friends, based on those in his autobiography I Never Had it Made (Putnam, 1972; o.p.), reveal that from early childhood Robinson was a giving person who was more concerned about the welfare of his friends and family than his own success. Tales of such heroes can stand retelling. Like most of its predecessors, this version is worthy of its subject. Ann G. Brouse, Steele Memorial Library, Elmira, N.Y.
