Testing the Ice Giveaway




I am so pleased to be working with Scholastic again to bring you another fabulous book and giveaway.  Come back tomorrow for my review of this book.


About Testing the Ice:

In the early 1950s, legendary baseball hero Jackie Robinson literally "tested the ice" for his kids who so eagerly wanted to skate on the frozen lake near their home. Under Sharon Robinson's skillful authorship and Kadir Nelson's vivid illustrations, TESTING THE ICE also becomes a stunning metaphor for her father's remarkable racial breakthrough.

Buy it at Amazon

One (1) winner from my site will receive a TESTING THE ICE prize pack!
