Overview

With more than 2 million books sold, the Baseball Card Adventures bring the greatest players in history to life!

Like every other kid in his class, Joe Stoshack has to write a report on an African American who's made an important contribution to society. Unlike every other kid in his class, Joe has a special talent: with the help of old baseball cards, he can travel through time. So, for his report, Joe decides to go back to meet one of the greatest baseball players ever, Jackie Robinson, to find out what it was like to be the man who broke baseball's color barrier. Joe plans on writing a prize-winning report. But he doesn't plan on a trip that will for a short time change the color of his skin—and forever change his view of history and his definition of courage.

With historical photos and back matter to separate the facts from the fiction, New York Times bestselling author Dan Gutman takes readers on a page-turning trip through baseball’s past.

Two thumbs up for Dan Gutman and the book Jackie and Me. This book is great for any reluctant readers. The book Jackie and Me tells of a kid named Joe Stoshack who travels back in time to 1947 to see Jackie Robinson play ball and see all of the racist people Jackie had to face. The reason why Joe goes back in time is because he has to do a report on Jackie Robinson. When Joe goes back in time he turns into an African American. Joe faces all of the discrimination Jackie had to face from the whites, the fans,and his teammates. Joe takes part in history when he watches Jackie break the color barrier. This is a fantastic story and teaches you a lesson and that is to never let your feelings get the best of you.

                 Jackie and Me was a surprisingly good book. Dan Gutman wrote a beautifully detailed play-by-play of what happened in 1947. This book is a must read for baseball lovers.                  This book describes how segregation was so harsh then. Jackie Robinson is one of the main reasons that segregation was outlawed, and how we live today. Jackie Robinson made it possible for colored people to play in the Major Leagues. He was the first  baseball player to earn the Rookie of the Year award.                   In this book, Joe Stoshack goes back in time to learn about Jackie Robinson for a history project, but he runs into a bit of trouble back in 1947.

This book was excellent. Following up to Honus and Me, Joe Stostack "stosh" gets another tingling sensation when picking up a 1947 jackie Robinson Rookie Card. He again goes on an amazing adventure this time w the first african american bsball player Jackie Robinson. Ive read the first 6 books in this series and i have to admit this is the one that keep me reading more and is also the most suspensfulllll.... -> ;) Keep Reading.... ;) Soo.. on Jackies 1st day, he gets called some hurtfullllll stuf and is not letting anything get in his way, On the OPPOSITE SIDE<>>> STosh gets into a fight with his BatBoy Boss Ant. Ant is suspicios of Stosh coming from the future and attemps to rip a NEW bseballl card from Stosh-"his ticket home" :(> This book taught me alot and was also an exciting book for a kid who likes baseball, Dan Gutman, and reading. :)

When Joe Stoshack goes back to 1947, he thinks he's only going to learn about Jackie Robinson for a report. Instead, he learns what it was like to be black before desegregation. This is a great book.

In order to write an essay for school, 12 year old Joe Stoshak uses his baseball card collection to travel back to 1947 to meet Jackie Robinson and learns to understand better the racsim Robinson faced as the first African American in major league baseball; Stoshak, who is white, arrives in 1947 as a young black boy. Not great literature, formulaic and predictable, part of Gutman's baseball card series books.(See Honus, Babe, etc.) Young baseball fans LOVE them. Good for sports fans.

My 9-year old grandson loves baseball and needs to do more reading. This series has intrigued him. I've only read a little of the books but they each carry lessons. Jackie & Me examines prejudice, Shoeless Joe & Me is about honesty. The fantasy of the middle-school boy, also named Joe, being able to go back and meet these baseball greats keeps my grandson's interest during his entire reading time.
