42 is Not Just a Number Audiobook

42 is Not Just a Number

Author: Doreen Rappaport Narrator: Doreen Rappaport, JD Jackson Release Date: September 2017

Baseball, basketball, football, tennis, track and field — no matter the game or competition, Jackie Robinson hit it out of the park. His exceptional talents should have easily landed him a career in pro sports. But in the United States in the 1930s and ’40s, opportunities like those were closed to athletes like Jackie: his skin was the wrong color. Jackie settled for playing baseball in the Negro Leagues but chafed at being unable to prove himself in the majors. Then in 1946, Branch Rickey, manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers, decided that he was going to break segregation in the Major Leagues and recruited Jackie. Jackie accepted the offer, knowing that it would be rough going. Again and again, he exhibited courage, restraint, and phenomenal talent, despite being the target of cruel and sometimes violent hatred. In this compelling biography, award-winning author Doreen Rappaport chronicles the extraordinary courage and dignity of Jackie Robinson, who not only broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball but also changed white Americans’ perceptions of black Americans. His impact reached beyond the world of sports: he won over the hearts of all Americans and became an American hero.

Author: Barbara Bazaldua Narrator: Ova Saopeng Release Date: September 2015

The remarkable true story of a boy's resilience in the face of injustice. At the onset of World War II, nearly 120,000 Japanese Americans were incarcerated in concentration camps. Shigeru Yabu, a young boy from San Francisco, was forced from his home and moved, with his family, to the Heart Mountain Relocation Camp in Wyoming. A Boy of Heart Mountain is a poignant coming-of-age story about how one ten-year-old Japanese American boy named Shig tried to make sense out of being imprisoned for several years on the prairie. Forced from his home, his school, his friends, and his beloved dog, Shig and his family have to figure out how to get by in this strange and unfriendly place. He learns about many things there. He learns about loss, and about love, and about loneliness. And he learns about how important it can be to have a good companion or two alongside you in bad times and good times.

Born a stray, she must make her own way in the world, facing busy highways, changing seasons, and humans both gentle and brutal. Her life story, in her own words, is marked by loss, but also by an inspiring instinct to survive. And when it seems she will roam the woods and country roads alone forever, Squirrel makes two friends who, in very different ways, define her fate. At once heartrending and hopeful, Ann Martin’s exquisite story of a dog’s life is told with her trademark grace and insight. From the Compact Disc edition.

A Green Place to Be: The Creation of Central Park Audiobook

A Green Place to Be: The Creation of Central Park

Author: Ashley Benham Yazdani Narrator: John Pruden Release Date: April 2019

In 1858, New York City was growing so fast that new roads and tall buildings threatened to swallow up the remaining open space. The people needed a green place to be-a park with ponds to row on and paths for wandering through trees and over bridges. When a citywide contest solicited plans for creating a park out of barren swampland, Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted put their heads together to create the winning design, and the hard work of making their plans a reality began. By winter, the lake opened for skating. By the next summer, the waterside woodland known as the Ramble opened for all to enjoy. Meanwhile, sculptors, stonemasons, and master gardeners joined in to construct thirty-four unique bridges, along with fountains, pagodas, and band shells, making New York's Central Park a green gift to everyone.

A Negro League Scrapbook Audiobook

A Negro League Scrapbook

Author: Carole Boston Weatherford, Carole Weatherford Narrator: Ezra Knight Release Date: July 2008

Negro league baseball players didn't always get the respect that major leaguers received. And yet many-including Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, and Roy Campanella-quickly became standouts in the major leagues after 1947. Others didn't get to prove their mettle in the majors at all-or not until long past their prime. Leroy "Satchel" Paige mixed his blazing fastball with 29 other devastating pitches to win 42 games and strike out 402 batters in 1936. Credited with 175 stolen bases in one year, speedster James "Cool Papa" Bell delighted fans by scoring from first base on a bunt. And powered by steroid-free meals, Josh Gibson hit 75 homeruns in 1931-with one blast sailing 580 feet and another shattering a seat in Yankee Stadium. New York Times best-selling author Carole Boston Weatherford compiles an enthralling summary of Negro league history that includes fascinating tidbits about prominent pitchers, hitters, utility players, teams, and traditions.
