If you like baseball and history this book about Jackie Robinson is a good book for you. It is called I Am Jackie Robinson. It is about Jackie Robinson and when he lived in the early 1900'2. It is about how he was treated by white people and how he handled it. It also tells about how he joins a baseball team. His dream is to be a baseball players.

I enjoyed reading this book because it was about sports, especially baseball. The book also had speech bubbles which made it more fun to read. It was also fun to see what life was long ago and the book gives a lot of information about Jackie's early life.

This book is good second to fourth graders. If you like biographies, then you will enjoy this book.
