Jackie Robinson


Jackie_RobinsonJackie Robinson(Grades 1-4). 

Review for Spanish edition:  “Part of the "Yo Solo—Biografias" series, this easy-to-read biography introduces young readers to the life of Jackie Robinson, the first African American baseball player to play in the major leagues. This volume is a Spanish translation of the original English language book with the same title. Using a controlled vocabulary, the author describes some of the challenges, struggles, and triumphs of Robinson's life, from his childhood years in Pasadena California, to his acceptance as second baseman for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. Throughout the book, the author emphasizes the adjustments and challenges that Robinson had to face as he faced and overcame the injustices and discrimination of white neighbors, baseball players, officials, and spectators.   This biography would be useful for reports and independent reading in bilingual classrooms or libraries.” —Children’s Literature
