Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2015 Spring)
Originally published in the Childhood of Famous Americans series, this fictionalized biography is reissued under a new series name. Focusing on Robinson's childhood, the narrative takes readers through the athlete's induction into baseball's Hall of Fame and doesn't shy away from the racism he encountered. Supported by black-and-white illustrations, the accessible text offers an engaging account of this civil rights icon's formative years. Timeline. Bib.
