THE NEW YORK YANKEES ARE THE 2009 WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS
CONTEST HAS ENDED. COMMENTS ARE CLOSED.
The winners are as follows:
Grand Prize: Joyce Davis
Runner Up: Tomi Clark
In conjunction with my book fair post and The World Series, I am giving away a Testing the Ice Prize Pack.
Testing the Ice is a new children’s book illustrated by Kadir Nelson and written by Sharon Robinson. Sharon is the daughter of baseball legend Jackie Robinson, the first African-American to play in the major league.
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. Testing the Ice is a stunning metaphor for Robinson’s remarkable racial breakthrough.
Big Honda Media provided me with a copy of the book to preview and I was moved by the heartwarming story and brilliant illustrations. After my 8-year-old daughter read the book, she provided me with this review:
“It was great!” – Nee
