Who Was Jackie Robinson?
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
As a kid, Jackie Robinson loved sports. And why not? He was a natural at football, basketball, and, of course, baseball. But beyond athletic skill, it was his strength of character that secured his place in sports history. In 1947 Jackie joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking the long-time color barrier in major league baseball. It was tough being first- not only did "fans" send hate mail but some of his own teammates refused to accept him. Here is an inspiring sports biography, with black-and-white illustrations throughout.
Best book ever!!!!! Should make the books longer
This is a great way to keep your kids on the touch but not playing games, and gives fascinating facts.
This book is I can't even just WOW (:
