42 is Not Just a Number

42 is Not Just a Number

Author: Doreen Rappaport Narrator: Doreen Rappaport, JD Jackson Release Date: 01/09/2017

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: 01/09/2015

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.

A Computer Called Katherine: How Katherine Johnson Helped Put America on the Moon

Author: Suzanne Slade Narrator: Jeanette Illidge Release Date: 01/11/2019

The inspiring true story of mathematician Katherine Johnson--made famous by the award-winning film Hidden Figures--who counted and computed her way to NASA and helped put a man on the moon!

She knew it was wrong that people thought women could only be teachers or nurses--as wrong as 10-5=3. And she proved everyone wrong by zooming ahead of her classmates, starting college at fifteen, and eventually joining NASA, where her calculations helped pioneer America's first manned flight into space, its first manned orbit of Earth, and the world's first trip to the moon! Award-winning author Suzanne Slade and debut artist Veronica Miller Jamison tell the story of a NASA 'computer' in this smartly written, charmingly illustrated biography.

A Dog's Life

A Dog's Life

Author: Ann M. Martin, M. Martin Ann Narrator: Wendy Dillon Release Date: 01/10/2005

“I can’t speak for all dogs. Not all dogs are alike. And most certainly, not all dogs have the same experiences. . . .” Squirrel is not like most dogs. 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

A Green Place to Be: The Creation of Central Park

Author: Ashley Benham Yazdani Narrator: John Pruden Release Date: 01/04/2019

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.
