Description 

Just Like Josh Gibson
by Angela Johnson (Author) and Beth Peck (Illustrator)


The story goes...
Grandmama could hit the ball a mile,
catch anything that was thrown,
and do everything else --
just like Josh Gibson.

But unfortunately, no matter how well a girl growing up in the 1940s played the game of baseball, she would have faced tremendous challenges. These challenges are not unlike those met by the legendary Josh Gibson, arguably the best Negro-League player to never make it into the majors.

In a poignant tribute to anyone who's had a dream deferred, two-time Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Angela Johnson and celebrated artist Beth Peck offer up this reminder -- that the small steps made by each of us inspire us all.
