Read full description of the books:
This informational picture book explores the life of Jackie Robinson, who was a great baseball player for the Dodgers. It also shows his struggles of the color barrier at the time in major league baseball. His story is very significant because he was the first African American to play in the major leagues. This biography touches on very high level concepts, such as racism, but presents it at a level that is appropriate for young readers.
This would be a great book to use during Black History Month to show students how far our nation has changed. Or if baseball is an interest of any of your students, this is a great book to have students read an informational text that will still provoke their interest of baseball.
With informational text being so prevalent in the Common Core Standards, this text would be a great read-aloud to the whole class. This is a great book to have the students pull specific information from text, such as who, what, when, where and why. These questions will help retell the specific facts in the story. Since the story does provide an ample amount of information recalling this specific information will provide the students with a better comprehension of the text.

Read information about the authorAdler was born in New York City, New York. He graduated from Queens College in 1968 with a bachelor's degree in economics and education. For the next nine years, he worked as a mathematics teacher for the New York City Board of Education, while taking classes towards a master's degree in marketing, a degree he was awarded by New York University in 1971. In that same year, a question from his then-three-year-old nephew inspired Adler to write his first story, A Little at a Time, subsequently published by Random House in 1976. Adler's next project, a series of math books, drew on his experience as a math teacher. In 1977, he created his most famous character, Cam Jansen, originally featured in Cam Jansen and the Mystery of the Stolen Diamonds, which was published that year.
Adler married psychologist Renee Hamada in 1973, and their first child, Michael, was born in 1977. By that time Adler had taken a break from teaching and, while his wife continued her work, he stayed home, took care of Michael, and began a full-time writing career.
Adler's son, Michael S. Adler, is now the co-author of several books with his father, including A Picture Book of Sam Adams, A Picture Book of John Hancock, and A Picture Book of James and Dolly Madison. Another son, Edward, was the inspiration for Adler's Andy Russell series, with the events described in the series loosely based on adventures the Adler family had with Edward's enthusiasm and his pets.
As of November 2008, Adler has three sons and two grandsons. He lives in Woodmere, New York.
