A nonfiction Little Golden Book about the trailblazing baseball player!
This Little Golden Book captures the essence of Jackie Robinson for the littlest readers.
Lively text and compelling artwork detail Robinson’s remakable journey from childhood, to playing for the Negro Leagues, to then becoming the first African American to play in Major League Baseball in the modern era.
Little ones will be inspired by the many challenges Robinson gracefully rose to, while they learn important baseball and civil rights history.
Series Overview: LITTLE GOLDEN BOOKS have been loved by children for more than 75 years.
When they were first published in 1942, high-quality books for children hadn’t been available at a price most people could afford. Little Golden Books changed that! Priced at just 25 cents and sold where people shopped every day, they caused an instant sensation and were soon purchased by the hundreds of thousands.
Created by such talented writers as Margaret Wise Brown (author of Goodnight Moon) and Richard Scarry, Little Golden Books have helped millions of children develop a lifelong love of reading. Today, Little Golden Books feature such beloved classics as The Poky Little Puppy and Scuffy the Tugboat, hot licenses, and new original stories—the classics of tomorrow, ready to be discovered between their sturdy cardboard covers and gold-foil spines.
