Beisbol! Latino Baseball Pioneers and Legends Written & Illustrated by Jonah
& Low, 2001
“Children who collect baseball cards will appreciate the 14 stars featured in BEISBOL!.... Striking full-page portraits….” (Publishers Weekly) Read the review.>
“The author has selected an interesting, well-balanced variety of players and offers the information in an eye-catching, highly readable format. Fascinating anecdotes about both well-known and unknown baseball heroes. Sure to appeal to young baseball fans and their parents.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“A welcome addition to any baseball collection.” (School Library Journal)
“Resembling tinted photographs, the portraits of the earliest Latino players… are particularly poignant because most of these players, barred from playing in the major leagues by their dark skin, would never have been on baseball cards. Recommended for all collections.” (Booklist)
“Baseball fans will enjoy the stats, baseball-card-style photos, and brief biographies of these fourteen Latin-American players from the game’s early days.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)
