    read jackie and me.... GREAT BOOK

    Two thumbs up for Dan Gutman and the book Jackie and Me. This book is great for any reluctant readers. The book Jackie and Me tells of a kid named Joe Stoshack who travels back in time to 1947 to see Jackie Robinson play ball and see all of the racist people Jackie had to face. The reason why Joe goes back in time is because he has to do a report on Jackie Robinson. When Joe goes back in time he turns into an African American. Joe faces all of the discrimination Jackie had to face from the whites, the fans,and his teammates. Joe takes part in history when he watches Jackie break the color barrier. This is a fantastic story and teaches you a lesson and that is to never let your feelings get the best of you.

    Jackie

    This book, Jackie and Me was pretty impressive compared to the books I have read. In the beginning Joe Stoshack gets in a huge fight that gets him suspended indefinitely. Later he goes home and picks up a card and gets a "tingling sensation" then travels through time to the date printed on the card. Later he is assigned a project, a history report. He decides to do a project on Jackie Robinson. Know this "gift/power" he has, he tries to get his hands on a Jackie card. He ventures to Flip's Card Club, makes a deal with Flip and gets a card. He travels back to 1947, he suddenly is African American; he starts to make friends with Jackie. He tells them a lot of unbelievable things, such as that Jackie will be "Rookie of the Year" before there was a rookie of the year. He confused and concerned Jackie. Later, he tries telling Jackie the truth about him being from the future, but sadly and expectedly Jackie gets even more concerned for Joe, Jackie's wife almost calls the cops. I do recommend this book. It is high in racial/gender tolerance. Good to learn how to be a good, tolerant citizen. You should get this book. I give it a 4 of 5 rating. I have learned a lot from this book. It is a nice combination of drama, comedy and suspense.
    That's all I'm typing.

    A Historic Moment

    Introduction
    If you like a good sports story, or like to just read a book, then this one might be just for you. This story was about a hero who changed not just the color barrier in baseball, but changed history to the world.

    Description
    Joe Stoshack was a regular kid with a attitude, but with something special. If he held a baseball card in his hand, he would be traveled into that date and time. One day, his teacher gave his class an assignment on black history, and he decided to do Jackie Robinson..

    Evaluation
    The setting if the story was back in the 1900's, in segregated times. It was a book to see how different people can reflect the world.

    Conclusion
    A sport wasn't the only thing that changed. Before long, there were black policemen, politicians, doctors and so many other things. That's how the present-day United States is today, everybody is equal.

    Final Review
    I would recommend this book to anyone who likes baseball and American history. I liked the book because it was a historic moment when Jackie Robinson struck the color barrier.

    I chose a great book!

    I chose this book for my grandson for one of his holiday gifts. He is in the 4th grade and is 9 1/2 years old. I always buy my grandchildren a new book for the holidays. I thought this would appeal to him because he LOVES baseball (he was in the stadium when the Phillies won the World Series) and I also thought that Jackie's story was inspirational and relevant, given the election of Mr. Obama. I didn't know until he opened it that he had already read Mr. Gutman's book "Babe and Me" about Babe Ruth. I understand there is also a book about Shoeless Joe. Then, a friend of mine who teaches 3rd great said this series is "IT" with the boys in the upper elementary grades in her school. Sometimes grandmothers do know things. My grandson finished it before the winter holiday break was over and I think used a gift card to buy the Shoeless Joe book.
