    3. Sam is shy and has a hard time making friends No one seems to appreciate Sam s one gift he can recite the play by play for every game the Dodgers have played in recent history Then Davy comes to work at Sam s mother s inn Finally Sam has someone to share his love of the Dodgers with This is the story of how Sam, a ten year old Jewish kid, got to be best friends with a sixty year old negro, and in the process met Jackie Robinson.A great tie in to character counts and the fairness pillar.

    5. One of my favorites from my childhood still holds up years later As a kid, I was drawn to this book because of baseball, but it stuck with me because of how it handles loneliness, prejudice, friendship, and loss Barbara Cohen was masterful in how she wrote for children on these topics without talking down to them.


    6. That was so sad I felt like crying because, well he dies That is just sad And they were such good friends Fiction or not, it s still really sad and painful to lose a friend Ps I did not want to put any spoilers


    7. Poignant story about a ten year old boy who befriends a sixty year old black man who s hired as the cook at his mother s inn They both share a passion for the Brooklyn Dodgers which brings together a beautiful story of an unlikely friendship that is wonderful to witness as the reader



    8. Beautiful friendship between a young Jewish boy and an older African Americanmale, hired as help to work for the young lads mother They share a common interest in baseball.


    9. Every now and then I pick up a kid s book that looks lonely on the shelf This one, written back in 74, with one of those dated three color covers appealed to me anyway Speaks to my love of baseball and anything 1940s When Sammy makes his first trip to Ebbets Field, he says Far below me the grass was greener than any grass I had ever seen I remember thinking that the first time I went to Fenway, and I m still taken aback by the vivid colors every time I go This is a good read about a Jewish kid o [...]


    10. Good book, but definitely needs to be read with an adult This was written in a different era and some of the words and language used needs to be discussed with children Some sad parts dealing with death and saying good bye when we re not ready.
