Roberto Clemente: Heroe del Beisbol

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lilliam Oliva Collmann
Part of the "Famous Latinos" series, this concise and simply-written biography of Roberto Clemente should satisfy young readers' curiosity about the remarkable life of this baseball hero. It traces Clemente's trajectory from his humble origins in Puerto Rico to his successful career as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the United States. Young readers will come to appreciate Clemente's natural talent and determination as a major league baseball player. They will learn how Clemente's well-rounded skills helped his team achieve two World Series victories. The biography also highlights Clemente's struggles with racial discrimination in the 1950s United States, his longing for the culture of his native Puerto Rico and the inspiring humanitarian and charitable work that led to his tragic death. Aptly illustrated with black-and-white and color photographs and accompanied by a table showing Clemente's 17-year career, this book also includes a glossary of baseball terms, a timeline and a resource page listing additional books and Internet sites for readers seeking more information.
