-Bank Street College Best Children’s Book of the Year, IRA Notable Book, YALSA Best Book for Young Adults, Children’s Book Award, Captial Choice, ALA Top 10 Youth Sports Books * "[Robinson’s] private view of her father’s accomplishments, placed within the context of American sports and social history, makes for absorbing reading." — BOOKLIST, starred review "An excellent and much-needed addition to the Jackie Robinson story." — KIRKUS REVIEWS * SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL and PUBLISHERS WEEKLY starred reviews Praise for TESTING THE ICE
-Parents’ Choice Award "Jackie Robinson’s daughter builds a charming story around a childhood memory. . . . Nelson’s close-ups expertly provide suspense. . . . With the basics of his biography efficiently woven in, this is a lovely introduction to a baseball legend." — NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW "The daughter of the man who broke baseball’s color barrier weaves together two stories about courage. One is well-known. . . . The other occurred after he retired from baseball, on a frozen pond at his house in Stamford, Conn., witnessed only by his kids and their friends. At their request, Robinson, who couldn’t swim, carefully and successfully tested the ice, moving his daughter to think: "My dad is the bravest man alive." Kadir Nelson’s vibrant watercolors and oils, based on Robinson family photos, take on a life of their own." — USA TODAY
