I have no idea how historically accurate this book is, but it's good entertainment and makes some excellent points about racism, hard work, and fairness. The lessons it's trying to teach are very explicit, no reading between the lines here. But it works because it's a short book and the serious statements are interspersed with humor. The jokes are part of what made my seven year old ask for repeat reads. And trust me, he was getting the anti-discrimination point of the story too. (We may be raising a rabble-rouser.) Robinson's life and baseball are so intertwined, and it's great for little sports fans to learn about how much some folks had to fight through just for a chance to play.
