Now in paperback, here is the story of groundbreaking baseball player Jackie Robinson, part of the New York Times bestselling series of biographies of heroes for ages 5 to 9.

Each picture book in this series is a biography of a significant historical figure, told in a simple, conversational, vivacious way, and always focusing on a character trait that made the person heroic. The heroes are depicted as children throughout, telling their life stories in first-person present tense, which keeps the books playful and accessible to young children. And each book ends with a line of encouragement, a direct quote, and photos on the last page.

This title features Jackie Robinson, the first African-American to play Major League Baseball. His bravery made history, leading the way to equality in all sports in America. 
This friendly, fun biography series inspired the PBS Kids TV show Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum. One great role model at a time, these books encourage kids to dream big. Included in each book are:
 • A timeline of key events in the hero’s history
 • Photos that bring the story more fully to life
 • Comic-book-style illustrations that are irresistibly adorable
 • Childhood moments that influenced the hero
 • Facts that make great conversation-starters
 • A virtue this person embodies: Jackie Robinson's bravery led him to make his mark on American history.
