Description

Young Steve Satlow is thrilled when his hero Jackie Robinson moves onto his block. After the famed second baseman invites Steve to a Dodgers game, the two become friends. So when Jackie hears that the Satlows don't have a Christmas tree, he decides to give them one, not realizing the Satlows are Jewish. But Jackie's gift helps these two different families discover how much they have in common.

Written by the daughter of baseball legend Jackie Robinson and illustrated by a Caldecott Honor winner, Jackie's Gift is a holiday tale-based on a true story-about friendship and breaking barriers.

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 18, 2010 – Robinson, Jackie Robinson's daughter, adds to her oeuvre with this Christmas anecdote, based on family history, about cultural differences and common ground. Young Steve Satlow's Jewish family welcomed the Robinsons to their Brooklyn neighborhood, while others protested their arrival. Befriending his baseball hero, Steve mentions that his family doesn't have a Christmas tree and, not realizing that the Satlows don't celebrate Christmas, Jackie brings them one. It's a wonderfully human moment, the awkwardness of which is eased by laughter and the spirit in which the gift was given. A tender and nuanced holiday story, all the more moving because it's true. Ages 3–up.
