Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In simple, fluid language, Adler writes of the sports hero who paved the way for other minorities by being one of the best athletes of this century. Jackie Robinson wasn't offered fat scholarships or mind-boggling salaries for his sports skills. He simply outplayed and outhit and outran his teammates and became the first black to play major league baseball. Adler emphasizes Robinson's life in sports, mentioning his marriage and children only briefly. The illustrations are serviceable, and help move the action along, but most children will read this because it is so approachable, certain to pique further interest. A list of important dates is included, as is an index. Ages 8-10. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- Adler describes the life of baseball player and civil rights activist Jackie Robinson in eight chapters accompanied by numerous black-and-white illustrations. A chronological list of important dates in Robinson's life is included. Doing justice to a person of Robinson's stature in a 48-page biography aimed at elementary grade readers is a difficult task. Adler does an admirable job of presenting Robinson as both a baseball player and as the central figure in the integration of major league baseball, documenting both his skill as an athlete and the tremendous amount of adversity he faced because of his race. Mention is also made of some of the less positive periods in Robinson's life, including his belonging to a gang in his youth and his son's battle with drugs. The drawings are of marginal quality and do little to enhance the text. --Tom S. Hurlburt, Minneapolis Public Library .
