    A wonderful edition to any collection

    The illustrations are outstading! Children that read this book are exposed to the history of U.S. baseball, and the importance of Jackie Robinson to the sport. Readers will also be exposed to the bond that exists with a young son and his deaf father. An excellent read-aloud!

    Uhlberg Hits a Home Run

    'Dad, Jackie, and Me' is a touching story of a young boy learning about the cruelty of discrimination and the pride of those who suffer from prejudice. At first, the boy is surprised when his deaf father takes a sudden interest in baseball and Jackie Robinson in particular. But as the two of them attend games at Ebbets Field and begin a scrapbook of news clippings about Jackie, the boy understands the connection between his deaf father and the first black player in the Major Leagues. Uhlberg has a way of drawing a reader into the story and back in time to experience a little slice of life from 1947. He gives wonderful insight into the perspective of a child growing up with parents who are 'different.'

    Review: ¿Dad, Jackie, and Me¿, written by Myron Uhlberg, weaves

    Review: “Dad, Jackie, and Me”, written by Myron Uhlberg, weaves the story of Jackie Robinson with the story of a young boy with a Deaf father. I love the scrapbook pages that are reproduced as part of the inside cover. The story told through the eyes of the young boy reveal his excitement for the game of baseball and the history made by Jackie Robinson.

    In the telling of the story the boy also reveals a small peek into the life of living with a Deaf father and how that impacts his life. At the end of the book there is an Author’s Note that sheds light on what parts of the story are factual.

    The illustrations capture the action of the game as well as depicting the time period of the story. A study of the illustrations make you feel like you are involved in the story itself. This would make a good read aloud story for younger children as well as a read on your own for children interested in the life of Black Americans that made an impact in American History. (rev. C.Delorge)

    Two awards have been given for this book. "Teachers' Choices" An International Rading Association Project and "Schneider Family Book Award."

    Author Myron Uhlberg is also author of the Printer which is in the ACS library, Flying Over Brooklyn, and Lemuel the Fool.
    DISCLOSURE: A complimentary review copy of Dad, Jackie, and Me was provided to us by Peachtree Publishers for the purpose of review. All opinions are solely those of the reviewer.

    What a touching and truly beautiful story.

    I checked this book out at the library and was brought to tears. What a beautiful story of strength. It teaches us all to be strong when faced with adversity. To focus on doing what is right and to trust that humanity will be there to support you through. I really loved it.
