Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- A more indicative title for this book might be The Story of All-Black Baseball and Jackie Robinson, as only two of the six chapters deal with the life of Jackie Robinson, the first black to play major league baseball. The writing style is consistent with the other books in this series: choppy and unimaginative. Unremarkable color illustrations and standard black-and-white photographs are sprinkled liberally throughout the book. David Adler's Jackie Robinson: He Was the First (Holiday, 1989) is a more interesting biography aimed at the same reading level. That book also includes a table of contents, a list of important dates, an index, and biographical information about the author and illustrator--features not included in O'Connor's book. The front inside cover of O'Connor's book does have an area where the reader is encouraged to write his or her name and the date after he has finished reading the book. --Tom S. Hurlburt, Minneapolis Public Library

    I didn¿t like the way the white people treated Jackie Robinson. They tried to spike him. In this one part every black person who played baseball had to make up their own teams. They made up Cuban Giants, Cuban x Giants, Leland Giants, Columbia Giants. They came up with really good teams. Because he was the only black player (Jackie Robinson) then more black people came then they had to make up their own teams. You should read the book Jackie Robinson. I like this book about the history of Jackie Robinson. This book is good. I recommend you read this book because Jackie Robinson was the first black player to play on a white team that didn¿t like him. That's what makes this book so interesting.
