I enjoyed learning more about the life of Jackie Robinson, and this story was charming. I really liked the illustrations too--Nelson captures children quite well, I think! Thanks, Michelle B., for telling me about Kadir Nelson!

Carla Kadir Nelson is awesome and extremely talented. At his presentation at Quail Ridge, he revealed that the artwork for one of his books was 8 years in the making. Can you imagine?

Lesley Looper 8 years?! Amazing! Wish I could've seen him at Quail Ridge!

Michelle Burton Yes, Kadir Nelson is awesome. Testing the Ice is a great book, however I really love We Are the Ship which won the Coretta Scott King Award. Check that one out.
