    I listened to the Book Just Like Josh Gibson by Angela Johnson on the Tumble Books website The story is about an African American hgirl in the 1940's who wanted nothing than to play baseball But girls didn't play baseball in the 1940's She finally got her chance and it was a story to tell for years to come It is an inspiring story about following your dreams and not giving up I thought the woman's voice who read the story on the Tumble Books website was actually not very interesting I thought she read it too slowly and paused awkwardly I did like that the words that were being read were higlighted in red

    Just Like Josh Gibson by Michael L Printz Award winning author Angela Johnson is a charming picture book about a conversation between a grandmother and her granddaughter surrounding a family tradition The book sheds light on the gender ineuality faced in the 1940's a time that was not directly stated in the text This book would serve as a fantastic hearty book to read during the month of February in celebration of Black History month and would serve as a good book to base a conversation around a family and oral traditions unit A teacher could also potentially have students practice using context clues in this book as there are several historical aspects not directly spelled out in this book but can be strongly inferred using close read strategies such as context clues and looking at the picture for guidance This book would be a great choice for grade 4 potentially 5 depending on how the book will be used in conjunction with the curriculum Students will appreciate the richness and authenticity of the oral tradition weaved throughout this book It will certainly spark great conversation about the importance of oral tradition in families as well as tie in aspects of Black History
