My opinion about the book is that you should read the book and it is about black history. If you like baseball you should read the book. If you like Jackie Robinson this is another reason to read this book. My favorite part was when Jackie Robinson made a new friend Pee Wee Reese at the end. I hate the part when Jackie Robinson couldn?t go with his teammates in hotels and he had to go somewhere else to sleep and eat.
The illustrations are black and white, but some are colorful too. The interesting part is that Jackie Robinson made a friend of a different race named Pee Wee Reese. The big ideas in the book include that it doesn?t matter if you have a black man on your team. The book is not like any other book that I?ve read because it has too much history. I felt like it was sad to have laws like that reading the book. The characters that I liked are Jackie Robinson and Pee Wee Reese. Both of them are great people to me. The book makes me wonder about black history I recommend the book to kids that like baseball. If you like baseball you should read the book. I like the part when Jackie Robinson had a new friend.
