    My tribute to the 100th anniversary of Jackie Robinson’s birth continues this time with a touching picture book by acclaimed nonfiction writer Peter Golonbock Golonbock’s purpose here is to expose children to Robinson’s role in history He simplified the integration of baseball into black and white right and wrong The book comes to a climax during a game a in Cincinnati against the Reds a city close to the Jim Crow south Fans booed Robinson for showing up to the game simply because of his skin color Teammate and Dodgers team captain Pee Wee Reese may or may not have put his arm around Robinson’s shoulder before the game started in a moment of solidarity This moment has been passed down as baseball lore for generations but is widely known as factually accurate In embracing Robinson Reese a southerner is telling his peers that Jackie Robinson is his teammate and he is here to stay Golonbock has done a wonderful job of relating this historic events to school children in what should be a poignant teaching tool in elementary classrooms 4 stars

    Teammates by Peter Golenbock is great book about Jackie Robinson This book is about a game against the Cincinnati Reds Throughout the book it talks about the racial tensions during this time During the game fans began to boo Jackie Robinson because of his skin color His teammate Pee Wee Reese put his arm around Jackie to show that he is proud to be his teammate and friend This game actually did happen and the events of the game did occur which makes it even important This would be a great book to have in the classroom It is a great idea to have sports books in the classroom for students that enjoy sports I would use this book two ways I would use it to teach social studies and the racial tensions and its effects on sports I would also use to show my students that even though we all look different we can still be friends and we must stick up for them

    I love this book mainly because of sports Also the racial tension involved This book is all about Jackie Robinson and his life as a black man plyaing baseball in a white man's league You can imagine how many obstacles Jackie had to overcome This book shows that not every person in that time period were against eual treatment but a lot were Shows how two teammates worked against the odds to prove what really matters This illustrations are very detailed and nice Especially of the team and Jackie The colors are not as bright but it’s fits the time zone I think this will be great for children because so many lessons can come from it Slavery oppression and racism I would recommend for ages 8 12

    This book serves as an introduction to how Pee Wee Reese stood up for Jackie Robinson as he was the first to integrate into the major leagues I wanted SO MUCH MORE from this story What happened after he stood up? Where are the uotes from Robinson's POV? How long did it take before major leagues were fully integrated? I almost wanted to only rate this 3 stars because so much of the story is left untold

    I picked this book out because I like to watch baseball and I have previous knowledge of Jackie Robinson This book goes back to 1940's and talks about segregation between the two leagues and how each got treated differently My students would learn that anything is possible and look at the world they live in compared to than I would love to have this book in my classroom because I like that it teaches history and segregation based on color

    This picture book gives a great insight into the racial prejudice that grew with and around baseball The highlight on prominent Black and white baseball players was appreciated because these could be used for a biography project in a social studies unit The illustrations were absolutely gorgeous as well
