His hero, Jackie Robinson, broke the color barrier in baseball the year before. Then it happens--Steve's new neighbor is none other than Jackie Robinson Steve is beyond excited about living two doors down from the Robinson family. He can't wait to meet Jackie.

   Wonderful
Part of summer reading. We had some hard time in the prelude with discussion of the death of the father, Mr. Rule told the judge. But if you have a sensitive kid, you have to be prepared for that. So far two people have asked to borrow it after reading the book.

   Book was torn
Love the book for my grandson, but the book was completely thru at tope, as if cut by sharp scissors. It looks like it was intended as a present, and it's just not that useful anymore.

   A book to cherish with your children or grandchildren!
I have had the greatest joy to have had this book read to me by my 9 year old grandson, Mrs Clinton writes. Because of the holidays, my grandson has asked if he could call me daily to read. He has picked this book and it is one of his favorites. It warms the heart to the core.

   Outstanding
This is a well written story that is perfect for 2020. I am a fourth-grade teacher and I was looking for a new read aloud. It's just too good a book to put down. I've read it in one sitting. I've always enjoyed the themes of friendship, respect, and acceptance of differences. Such a perfect, feel good book for our society, Diana said. I can't wait to read it to my students. I'm going to pair it with Teammates. Thanks to Sharon Robinson for sharing this lovely story.

   To help grandson
The reason I read the book was to see what was said about the Jewish people and be ready to answer any question that my grandson had, my daughter and family came down last night and I explained the Menorah and lighting the candles for Chanukah, I was so glad that he is interested in different religions, this will make a better person of him as he grows.

   Great for Young Readers
In the aftermath of the book, Jackie Robinson's daughter, Renita, explains the things she changed from the reality for a better story. It was a delight to talk about the book with her sixth-grade English teacher.

   Too Much History/ Wonderful Characters
The book is also being sold to major league baseball fans. The book was originally intended for my son to read about a friendship mentorship. The story of what happens with the people gets weighed down with a lot of drag about historic detail that doesn't help move the plot along, he said. I thought I'd read it and tell my son about it. It's just too difficult to get through, Tunick said. In "The Fall," Blair uses too many historical facts in places where she is supposed to be building suspense. Even with time, it takes too long to get to the satisfying parts of the story. If you think this is a book report that you could read, you must be at the wrong school. It's wonderful to see a good, moral, honest role model and friend for children, Halle Berry said. It's great to have the adult characters around to introduce your kids to reading.

   Great story about one of america’s truly brave Heroes
Sharon's family story is a great story about family struggle and you can't beat personal experience when it comes to these stories, Kono said of The People's Journey.

   Good idea, but the implementation is a little sappy.
I really wanted to like this book, but it was too sappy. It's just that my 10 year old daughter thinks it's really sappy. Steve, I really didn't like him. He has a lot of problems at school, and he's a troublemaker. He and his best friend Sena push her down when she comes to his house to deliver bad news. The story moves back to good memories of Steve's past related to baseball and his love of Jackie Robinson. Jackie Robinson was an incredible baseball player, and he faced many challenges in integrating that game of baseball into the American League, Hall of Famer Frank Robinson said. Jackie Robinson's book glosses over the racial conflicts, and just presents Jackie as a candidate for Sainthood.
