From School Library Journal:

Grade 5–8—Wukovits does a credible job of adding historical perspective to a straightforward account of Robinson's life and accomplishments. He sets the stage by focusing on baseball's history of racial exclusion, and on the discrimination faced by the athlete and his family. He covers Robinson's military career and his brief stint in the Negro Leagues before he signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Robinson's triumphant career in the major leagues and his later life are detailed as well. This is a well-researched and concise account, geared to the needs of report writers. Black-and-white photographs round out the text. For a more comprehensive look at segregation's effect on baseball history, steer readers to these excellent books on the Negro Leagues: Lawrence S. Ritter's Leagues Apart (HarperCollins, 1995) and Patricia and Frederick McKissack's Black Diamond (Scholastic, 1994).—Marilyn Taniguchi, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA
