In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson

Amazon.com Rating:

Shirley Temple Wong sails from China to America with a heart full of dreams, bound for her new home of Brooklyn, New York. America is indeed a land full of wonders, but Shirley doesn't know any English, so it's hard to make friends. It is 1947, and Jackie Robinson, star of the Brooklyn Dodgers, is everyone's hero. Jackie Robinson is proving that a black man, the grandson of a slave, can make a difference in America. On the ball field and off, America becomes the land of opportunity for Jackie Robinson, and Shirley as well.
