it was amazing

Another amazing book about baseball player Jackie Robinson...this one is told by his daughter Sharon Robinson. She manages to capture the essence of Jackie Robinson's character by not only sharing his experience playing major league baseball but by also showing how those same characteristics translated into his every day life as a father and husband. The illustrations will absolutely take your breath away. Kadir Nelson is one of the finest illustrators I've ever seen. His work is AMAZING! Fantastic story and beautiful illustrations!!!!
