Testing the Ice is a great picture book by Sharon Robinson, illustrated by Kadir Nelson, and is a true story about Jackie Robinson.
About 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.
