Jackie and Me
By: Dan Gutman
The book I read for my book report was called Jackie and Me.
Five important objects
I chose this batboy jersey because in the story Joe became the batboy for the Dodgers. The team Jackie Robinson played on. Most of the events took place while he was the batboy. Being the batboy allowed him to get to know Jackie Robinson more.
I chose the baseball card shop because this is where he got the Jackie Robinson card. The card helped so he could travel back into time to meet Jackie for his black history month report.
I chose the silver briefcase because Joes dad wanted to get baseball cards from when he travels back into time. So when Joe comes back home he could give the card to his dad so his dad will sell the cards for a lot of money.
I chose Mcalpin Hotel because this is where Jackie lived. This is also where Joe stayed. Joe also stayed in Jackie Robinsons room.
I chose this item because this is the card he used to travel back into time. This card was really important because none of this story would have happened without the card. This card allowed Joe to meet and get to know Jackie Robinson.
