Read full description of the books:



This is an exemplary book about the friendship between a young boy and an old man and how Jackie Robinson made a difference to both of them. The book is set in the era when Jackie Robinson was just hired as the first black baseball player in the major league. The friendship is formed between Sammy, a young, introverted Jewish boy and Davy, an old black man who is hired as a cook for his mom’s inn. Their friendship at the beginning is based upon their mutual love for baseball, the Brooklyn Dodgers, and Jackie Robinson. Their friendship blossoms into one based upon mutual respect and love for one another. Sammy has lost is father and has no good male role model. He’s sustaining himself on egg salad sandwiches and his photographic knowledge of every Dodger’s game. Davy comes along and becomes the friend Sammy needed and, more importantly, the role model he required so desperately. Color never plays a role in Sammy’s and Davy’s friendship and this theme sends a strong message to the young reader of this fantastic book. It is a great book with a great life lesson about friendship and tolerance. :)
