What weabout it
This book presents children with an African American hero, and explains Civil Rights history in kid-friendly language.


The life of Jackie Robinson, the first black player in Major League Baseball, is rendered in detail in this book, one of a series of historical figures by Brad Meltzer, who wants kids to know that everyone is capable of heroism.

The comic book-influenced layout keeps the story rolling at a clipped pace.

“Nobody wins a rock fight,” is among the many lessons we learn, as well as the fact that brave people experience fear. Thoroughly entertaining, this story is thick with riveting narrative.
