Jackie & Me Reviews

    this book I read was about Jackie and me. Joe was a kid that goes to school and he has a special talent. That no one knows about he can hold baseball cards in his hand. His hand will start tingling and he can travel in time. To see them when they were alive. Joe wanted to go back into time to see Jackie Robertson. The first black person to play baseball on a all white baseball team. Jackie was a black person that dreamed of playing baseball. but since Jackie was the only black person everyone was racist back then so he got called a lot of mean stuff and everytime he would play he would get booed at. Jackie was the first person to beat the baseball white person only rule and after that he could have as many black people as you want.

    I am a huge fan of these books, but after reading Babe and Me, that really messed up the series, I liked this book, but Babe and Me really relates to this book in a way where I don't believe that the character is talking like its HIM controlling the story, I really think that he is talking to much about his other travels in the past for the book in like the first thirty pages, so that made me lose interest that the story wasn't even about the STORY!

    A kid named Joe Stoshack that lives in Kentucky is going against a baseball team. With the pitcher named Bobby Fuller. He was a quick tempered pitcher. He was calling Joe names and Joe got mad so he started a fight then got suspended for the rest of the season. In school they had to do reports on black history month and he picked Jackie Robinson. He could travel in time with baseball cards. So he did going to Jackie Robinson's house. He would meet Jackie and get to know him. Then go to a couple dodger games and bring some baseball cards back. He left 1947 with a paper with Babe Ruth's signature on it. Jackie taught Joe a lesson to have the guts to not fight back.

    My impression of Jackie and Me by Dan Gutman was very good. It starts of with Joe the protagonist having to write a school report of a significant African-American. He strangely has away to travel back in time by holding a baseball card so he decides to go back and meet Jackie Robinson. When he arrives with Jackie Robinson he realizes he turned African-American when he went back in time. Joe felt what it was like to be a black man back in 1947 when they were treated poorly. He asks Jackie about his life and wrote down the answers then came back to present time. He wrote his report and ended up getting an A on his report. I think this book really well described what it was like being an African-American in 1947. They were beaten and called terrible names like "Brownie". Some parts were just hard to read and mind boggling like when players on Jackie's team (the Brooklyn Dodgers) said they would rather be traded to another team then play with a black man. I would recommend this book to people who know the game of baseball. You don't really even have to know it well just maybe the positions and other basic stuff. It teaches you about the history of America and how the blacks were discriminated just because of their skin tone. In conclusion I think the book captures the eye of the reader with its mind torturing discrimination.

    My interest in Dan Gutman's books are very good and this book was very good. It started of with Joe having to write a school report on an athletic African-American. He has a way to travel back in time by holding a baseball card. So, he decided to go back and meet Jackie Robinson. When he arrived with Jackie Robinson he realizes he turned African-American when he went back in time. Joe felt what it was like to be an African man back in 1947 when they were treated poorly. He asked Jackie about his life and wrote down the answers then came back to present time. His friend Pee Wee Reese who was also the shortstop and the team captain. Pee Wee was very nice to Jackie. He wrote his report and ended up getting an A on the report. I think this book was really well written. It was like being an African-American in 1947. Jackie Robinson was the first major league African American baseball player. Some Africans were beaten and called terrible names. Some parts were just hard to read and mind hurting like when players on Jackie's team which was the Brooklyn Dodgers, said "they would rather be traded to another team then play with a black man." I would recommend this book to people who loved Jackie Robinson and baseball itself. It can be hard to read in a few parts, but then you would know what it was like for them. Jackie Robinson had also had many friends.

    A boy named Joe Stoshack was born with a special power. He can travel through time with sports cards and vist historical events.Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier between the black league and the white league and made them one.Setting- this book takes place in Louisville, Kentucky and Brooklyn, New York. Plot- Joe has had horrible baseball game. His dad felt sorry for Joe and gave him a 1947 Jackie Robinson baseball card. Joe goes back in time with the card to the exact day Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier between the black league and the white league.Two quotes I liked were all of chapter four because it talks about Joe going back in time for the very first time to meet Jackie Robinson. The other quote is on page 41 and it talks about Ebbets Field were the Brooklyn Dogers played.In this book you are first person. I would recommend this book to everybody who likes to read about historical fiction and has a great love for sports.

    I recommend this book to sports people and anybody interested in historical figures. Joe Stoshack has to write a report on an African American who has made a contribution to society. Joe has a special talent that nobody else has. With the help of old baseball cards, he can travel through time. Joe decides to go back in time to meet Jackie Robinson, to find out what it was like to be the man who broke baseball's color barrier. He plans on writing a prize-winning report. He didn't plan on a trip that for a short time changed the color of his skin and forever changed his view of history and his definition of courage. Read the book to find out what happened.

    Im really interested in sports books. I love reading about sports history as well.This book is about a young boy (Stoch) who has the power to time travel. The cool thing is he uses baseball cards to do it. This book is an adventure back to the time when African Americans were not allowed to play sports. This story takes you through what it was like for Jackie in Stoch's eyes.I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves sports or just wants a good quick read.

    I read Jackie & Me by Dan Gutman i Like it was a very good book it talked about somethings i didn't know about Jackie Robinson, the setting is in Brooklyn 1947. The main characters are Jackie Robinson and Joe Stoshack. The conflict is that Joe's dad gives Joe a Jackie Robinson baseball card and Joe used it to travle back in time to see what Jackie Robinson is about. I would recommend it to baseball fans and Jackie Robinson fans because i think this book is good for people like them.

    According to my kids, these books should receive 5 stars. They LOVE this series. These aren't masterpieces, but I appreciated that this book didn't mince words when discussing how Jackie Robinson was treated.

    Joe Stoshack a character in this book who is a boy that plays baseball, and has to do a report for black history month in his school to get 4 tickets to an amusement park for free. To do the report topic he chose (Jackie Robinson) Joe uses his "sixth sense"/ability and holds a baseball card and travels back in time to the year of the baseball card. On his way he catches some trouble due to racism and learns quite some big things about Jackie Robinson. While learning about his topic he learns some lessons as well. I recommended this fact based fictional character book too people who want to learn more a little something about Jackie Robinson and to the people who want to go on a little book adventure.

    I would give this book a 4 star rating. It was a very interesting book. They went back into the past and tried to stop segregation but almost ends up dying. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes realistic fiction or sports in general. This kid Joe Stoshack had a special talent where he could go back into the past. when he went back he realized he was African American. He didn't figure out the problem but he definitely experienced it. This was a good book but it could of had a little more detail in the beginning of the story.

    Joe Stoshack has a unique ability. Whenever he touches a baseball card and thinks about the year it represents, he is transported back to that year. So, when his teacher assigns the class to pick a famous African American to do a report on, he chooses Jackie Robinson. Imagine going back in time and meeting Jackie during his rookie season with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Little does Joe know how dangerous his trip will be and all the obstacles that he will have to overcome in order to find his way back home.

    Jackie and me is a great novel 1 through 5 I would rate it a 4. It has action, emotion, drama,fun stuff. but It doesn't have the moment that joe stoshack stands up to his bully so that's why I give it a 4. Because I have seen at least 1000 movies and not one of them does not end without the good guy beating the bad guy.

    My review for this book was that i thought that it was pretty good. Why because it had a good story to it and it was fun to read. It's a historical fiction book about a kid who goes back to 1947 and learns about Jackie Robinson . It's a good read and it's also fun to read.

    In this book, te main character can travel through time with baseball cards. Because of a black history month project, he finds himself transported to the time of Jackie Robinson and he discovers he's black?! as luck would have it, he finds the man and they spend lots of time discussing his life and his choices. This book gives students a taste of what segregation was like and a fictional retelling of the man who was Jackie Robinson.
