We are the Ship by Kadir Nelson
I read this book with my high school students during Black History Month. We listen to an audio of this book. This made the book come alive. The narrator was awesome. I learned a lot about the baseball players in the league. I love the illustrations on point and in color. I enjoyed the pictures that were in the book. I like how the author uses chapters as the innings. I also use the lesson plans and activities that went with the book. Now my class is making baseball cards that go with the players in the book. I recommend this book to teachers, coaches, and students from K to 12. I give this historical story 5 stars. Please read to learn more about the Negro baseball league.
