I am Jackie Robinson | Children's Books Read Aloud


I am Jackie Robinson (Ordinary People Change the World)
by Brad Meltzer (Author), Christopher Eliopoulos (Illustrator)

Jackie Robinson always loved sports, especially baseball. But he lived at a time before the Civil Rights Movement, when the rules weren’t fair to African Americans. Even though Jackie was a great athlete, he wasn’t allowed on the best teams just because of the color of his skin. Jackie knew that sports were best when everyone, of every color, played together. He became the first black player in Major League Baseball, and his bravery changed African-American history and led the way to equality in all sports in America.
