    " I thought this book was really good. It had some racism in it dealing with Jackies baseball team. Jackie became more famous in the end. I think all of thes books by Dan Gutman are good. He is my favorite author. "

    " The story is about a young boy, Joe Stoshack, that has a secret power to travel through time using baseball cards. His teacher assigns the students to write a paper about and inspiring African-American. Joe chooses Jackie Robinson. Joe travels through time to 1947 and meets up with Jackie, however, Joe ends up as an African-American boy during that time. He views and experiences moments of prejudice and gets a real feel for what kind of obstacles Jackie Robinson went through to be the first African-American major league baseball player. Would recommend this book for middle school readers. "
