Sharon Robinson, the daughter of the late Baseball Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson, has written a beautifully illustrated book about her father. Here is a little description of the book:
“In the early 1950s, legendary baseball hero Jackie Robinson literally “tested the ice” for his kids who so eagerly wanted to skate on the frozen lake near their home. Under Sharon Robinson’s skillful authorship and Kadir Nelson’s vivid illustrations, TESTING THE ICE also becomes a stunning metaphor for her father’s remarkable racial breakthrough.”
