Testing the Ice: A True Story About Jackie Robinson

This is a wonderful story about how truly brave Jackie Robinson was…both as a pioneer in major league baseball and as a father. The illustrations are superb and tell their own story. This book, written by Jackie Robinson’s daughter, is obviously a labor of love. The love for her father absolutely flows through the text. Definitely a must-read!

Testing the Ice is nominated for the 2011-12 South Carolina Picture Book Award.
