This is a brief history of Jackie Robinson's entrance into professional baseball alongside the story of him testing ice and not knowing how to swim. This book uses the metaphor of testing the ice on a frozen lake and compares it to Robinson breaking the color barrier in professional baseball. It was a good story but the language was so mature and the baseball terms were heavy that I think this book would only be good for older readers. I wish it had focused more on Robinson's career because it feels like two really short stories mushed together to make one longer story. ( )

This amazing story of Jackie Robinson written by his daughter is excellent. There are many lessons in this book the main one being Courage. This k-3 readers would see this a great way to introduce, it can just be explained through pictures if nessacy. the Illustrations are excellent and one of the best i have seen. ( )

Narrated by his daughter, this kid friendly biography gives the reader a glimpse as to who Jackie Robinson was. It gives the reader background information about his career in baseball and the courage it took for him to be the first African American in the league. His daughter also shares a sweet story about how her father faces his fear and goes on to the frozen lake. By telling us this story, the reader sees a different side of Jackie Robinson. ( )

Testing the Ice is not your typical biography of Jackie Robinson. It is written by his daughter, Sharon Robinson. While it does briefly go into the reasons behind her father's fame, the author also tells the tale of a winter day when her father ventured out, alone, onto the ice of their lake, making sure it was safe for the children to skate on. The story provides a simple but effective metaphor for the ways in which Jackie Robinson forged a path for Black men to enter main-stream American sports. The book is uncomplicated but lovingly written and illustrated, making it a worthwhile book to read to young students. ( )

I loved this picture book. First I liked the big message. It takes courage to face the unknown. "In fact, Dad showed the same courage on the ice that day as he did when he broke the color barrier in baseball." I also like the first person point of view from Sharon Robinson. "And best of all, he was home more." It gave a new perspective on Jackie Robinson as more than just an amazing baseball player, but a loving father too. Overall this story shows how important it is to be brave, even when the outcome is unknown and failure is a possibility. ( )
