    I agree with Karen's reviews from this morning Reading these non fiction children's books has been eye opening This is a great book Objectively it's probably a five star book it only gets four stars from me because my interest in baseball isn't that great that's not the books fault though At first I was afraid the book would fall apart under its language the author uses a rhythm that is kind of old fashioned and stereoty

    If this doesn't win an award of some kind it will be a tragedy The artwork alone is enough to make this book a hit But Kadir Nelson's storytelling ability draws in the reader and keeps us wanting to know As I read I felt like I was sitting and listening to someone like Buck O'Neill talking about the old days He traces the history of the Negr

Son crossed over to the majors in 1947 Illustrations from oil paintings by the auth. What this book does well is capture the feeling of the players in the Negro league It is told with a collective we voice which honestly irked me as I read the book however in the author s note Kadir Nelson stated that he made that choice in order to show the unity It was only then that I truly grasped the uote from the beginning We are the ship all else the sea Overall Nelson conveyed a sense of perseverance and courage and lightheartedness through this bookIt was a little difficult to follow The people were introduced and then brought back again and again but there were so many ball players I couldn t keep track of them It was informative about the general history of the Negro League and why it was created The paintings were obviously a highlight the book itself is beautifulI would recommend this if you are looking to learn a new tidbit if you really like baseball or if you are looking for accessible nonfiction I can definitely see this book attracting some of the reluctant readers A Tangled Affair (The Pearl House you are looking to learn a new tidbit if The Prince of Pleasure (The Wilde Brothers, you are looking for accessible nonfiction I can definitely see this book attracting some of the reluctant readers

Ue baseball from its beginnings in the 1920s through the decline after Jackie Robin. This beautifully illustrated book chronicles the rise and fall of Negro League Baseball Full page paintings give you a real look at some of the most talented baseball players of their time and possibly of any time The writing is also awesome Using a collective we Kadir Nelson speaks with the voice of all Negro League players like he s been there and seen everything that he talks about He uses a very conversational tone like you were sitting on the back porch with any one of the players and talking about the things he d seen Unfortunately many of the Negro League players seem to have been lost over the passage of time That makes this a very important book a look at a neglected history And that s why it surprised me so much that the women who played in the Negro League were not mentioned at all I would have given this book a much higher rating but it seems a glaring omission to me Albeit most of the action wraps up around 1945 when Jackie Robinson signed with the Major Leagues And Mamie Johnson Toni Stone and Connie Morgan didn t join the league until somewhere around 1953 But it still seems like Nelson is doing to the women players what white people did to the African American players by neglecting to mention them he s effectively erasing them from history The subtitle of the book proclaims it to be the story of Negro League Baseball Why aren t women a part of that story
