    3. I really didn't know anything about Jackie Robinson before reading this obscure little bio. Sports have never really been my thing and most of the time I feel like sports stars/celebrities are given WAY more attention than they deserve. Jackie Robinson deserves all the acclaim he gets and then some. The author did a fantastic job setting the stage and climate for exactly what Jackie was up against. Racism ran rampant and being the first black man on a major league baseball team was no small feat [...]

    4. I read Jackie Robinson (Heroes of America Illustrated Lives) by Joshua E. Handy. This book was personally not my type. The book was very informative about the history of the past for Jackie Robinson, and how that lead to his future of playing on a The Major League Baseball team of The Dodgers. It was a fun start, but when they started to crunch numbers and show the scoring, I couldn't keep all of the numbers straight.The time frame of the book was back in the past when black (African American) p [...]

    6. This was a very interesting read by Joshua Hanft. It was really incredible to learn about Jackie Robinson and what life was like for him, before his major league days. Even after all the names he'd been called, and all the times he'd been pushed around, he still was able to rise up above and reach his goal of making it to the big leagues. He shows unbelievable courage and strength to keep fighting for his dream. He put his mind to it, and didn't stop until he accomplished it. When he made it the [...]

    7. The book is kind of far from an amazing book because there wasn't a lot of thrills in it. It was just a book about a famous baseball player. Also I'm really not a baseball fan so it wasn't a book I would like. The book really didn't have any parts that had me on the edge of the seat except when he was playing on the Dodgers during the World Series. The book started when Jackie was a boy living in neighborhood where little colored people lived. When growing up he faced a lot of racial events. The [...]

    8. I loved this book it's called "Jackie Robinson" by Joshua Hanft.

    11. I loved this story and learned a lot about the history of the game I love. It is amazing what Jackie had to go though to become the player he was. Not only did he have to practice the game but he had to tolerate those racist people who tried to destroy the game for him. Read this book and learn lessons about baseball as well as life in general

    12. Great story if you are baseball fan. I find it incredibly sad that there was even a color barrier that had to be broken. Robinson was quite a man, I am not sure that I would have had the bravery or the self control to do what he did.

    13. I think this was a great book. It showed that Jackie Robinson was a great person and also a great baseball player.
