It wasn't the best book. It didn't have a whole lot of action, but I enjoyed learning about a real baseball player. ( )

"First in the Field: Baseball Hero Jackie Robinson" is a book that focuses on the baseball great Jackie Robinson. It is about his childhood and about the discrimination he had to face becoming the first African-American baseball player to play for the Brooklyn Dodgers.
This was an excellent book with beautiful photography. It was laid out in a informational way that would keep children interested.
In the classroom I would have students right about a time when they had to overcome discrimination and how they did not give up. I might also have them draw pictures of a baseball field and players. We could also go out and play a little game of baseball. ( )
