   Appropriately challenging and instructive
Jackie Robinson: A Life in the spotlight. My 7-year-old granddaughter didn't know anything about him or anything about baseball. Robinson's widow, Jackie, said she was "100 percent behind" the book. Some of the words were challenging for her, especially the proper nouns. Yes, I like that -- I want her to be challenged. Enough of the book's 832 words were readable that it made the whole subject -- and the entire book -- accessible. Jackie Robinson was a major league baseball player and civil rights activist. He also helps my daughter learn about important concepts that will hopefully help shape her world view. The book is a whopping 60 pages. A quiz and two accompanying illustrations are also included. The quiz is, of course, harmless, but easily ignored. The illustrations are the only part of the book that really brings the story to life. This is, in fact, a completely different story from the one told by William Shakespeare or Michael Lewis. For what it is, it's a welcome addition to our collection of biographies.

   Biography geared for kids
The book also featured Jackie Robinson's childhood, his playing career and how he continued fighting for civil rights after he retired. The book goes into the untold story of the civil rights leader's life. There are actually a few things I learned about him from reading this book, including he served in the military and was a standout athlete in multiple sports in college. The book is around 60 pages and includes color illustrations by Robert Hein. There is a quiz at the end of the book to test the child's knowledge of the alphabet. There are also some discussion questions geared for critical thinking and a glossary of terms. It depends on what level your child is at reading level but I would say this book is geared more toward kids ages 8 to 10.

   Fantastic way for kids to learn about a Legend
Robinson, a man he has learned about in school, was a natural. Leaving aside biological reasons, I will now pass this on to my 8 year old daughter. In 57 pages, the book packs in the best facts for kids to know about the man and the impact he made on baseball and the world. Easy to follow and enjoy, the Web site says. When there are locations, the book will show maps and when there are years, they have a timeline for perspective. There is a 10 page quiz at the end, as well as discussion of how Jackie impacted our world and a glossary of terms. I think the age range this would be best for is about 7 to 9 years old, although my 10 year old did enjoy it.

   Bats A Thousand! Brilliant Biography!
Not only is this an excellent biography for young people about Jackie Robinson, it is also a history lesson. Ten additional questions and a glossary are included in this book. Thanks to Branch Rickey, the manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers, Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball. The Rev. Jesse Jackson would turn that around and lead to eliminating racial segregation. Robinson faced bigotry of all kinds from his fellow Dodgers and even some bigots in the crowd. One story I have heard all my life was that his team mates put a black cat in the locker room at the Carlton Hotel where Robinson was working, Mr. Robinson said. To his credit, Robinson never once threatened or retaliated against Hicks. His facility for baseball eased any doubts his detractors had about his character and in turn knocked out any bigotry. I love the maps, too. These are good additional tools for teaching. I'm a huge fan of the series.

   Very informative and an easy read for children.
Overall, I enjoyed the format of the book, especially the informative tidbits after each chapter. The glossary was also useful, and the quiz was also good. You will never forget how awesome and special Jackie Robinson was for his people and country.

   57 pages of Jackie Robinson bio!
The book includes 57 pages of Jackie Robinson's autobiography. Thanks for sharing this series of books, they all have a similar formula design with the varying specifics of each person's experiences. It contains eight, plus a glossary at the end of each chapter, plus some witty asides. At the end of the quiz, each student will get 10 questions, with upside down answers on the last question. Nobody I know of has ever written a book like this to read to a child, but there are lots of challenges people face that contribute to making their story interesting, he said. The parents will have to decide how in-depth to go into talking to their children about various topics, like racial insensitivity and learning how to properly express themselves. Through his autobiography, Jackie tells the story of his early athletic prowess, his breaking racial barriers and his legacy. Overall a great book, said Pauley.
