Publisher Description:

This baseball league that was made up of African American players and run by African American owners ushered in the biggest change in the history of baseball.

In America during the early twentieth century, no part was safe from segregation, not even the country’s national pastime, baseball. Despite their exodus from the Major Leagues because of the color of their skin, African American men still found a way to participate in the sport they loved. Author Varian Johnson shines a spotlight on the players, coaches, owners, and teams that dominated the Negro Leagues during the 1930s and 40s. Readers will learn about how phenomenal players like Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson, and of course, Jackie Robinson greatly changed the sport of baseball.

Learning history is so much more than dry boring facts regurgitated to fill in worksheets and quizzes. Rather, learning history should be about understanding the people and events of people - people who are just like us, people who have experienced events that changed their life as they knew it.

Covering a variety of American history events that have changed our world, this well-written series will engage children and help them understand the impact of the events that occurred during each time period. Black and white illustrations, maps, and sixteen pages of authentic photos bring a real-life experience to our children. Timelines and a bibliography are also included to enhance learning. These would make wonderful read-aloud or engage children in self-reading. An appealing supplement to any history program or to keep learning fresh through the summer. PB. 106 pgs. ~Deanne
