A Strong Right Arm book.

A Strong Right Arm book. Carter G. Woodson Award Nominee (0), Dorothy Canfield Fisher Children's Book Award Nominee (2004), Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award Nominee (2006). Michelle Y. Green tells the story about a young girl from Eastern Virginia who wants nothing more than to stand on the pitcher’s mound throwing strikes. A Strong Right Arm: The Story of Mamie "Peanut" Johnson is a biography written about an African American girl who dreamed of playing baseball in the big leagues.

A winning biography of Mamie 'Peanut' Johnson. She is also the author of the award-winning children’s book series, Willie Pearl, a book about her mother set in a Depression-era coal mining town. the true story of the underdog who succeeds despite tremendous odds.

I believe this book deserves a five star because it tells everything about Peanut Johnson and his struggles to play in the Major Leagues. This book is about one of the first African American baseball players to play baseball in 1948. The problem in the story is that the . B wont let him play because the color of his skin. But after many protests and the fact that they already let Jackie Robinson play. He was really excited to play. I would recommend this book because of its really good if you like baseball

Carter G Woodson Honor Book (Awards). I did like reading this book.

Carter G Woodson Honor Book (Awards). Penguin Young Readers Group. She wrote the way that people speak; for example, she says "I knew grandma wasn't having no baby" and "she musta believed me on the spot". She says she's played baseball in "smelly cow pastures where we had to step gingerly and wait for the dirt clods to be plowed smooth by lop-eared mules".

Author Michelle Y. Green tells the story of Mamie "Peanut" Johnson, one of only three women to play in the Negro Leagues and the first woman who pitched in a men's professional baseball league.

Mamie Johnson looks the batter in the eye. Sizes him up for a curve- or a fastball. Stretches her 5'2" frame. And pops a surefire, windup, coming-right-at-ya pitch smack dab over the plate. One that lets the batter know that this "peanut of a girl" means business. Fueled by her passion for the game and buoyed by the inspiration of Jackie Robinson, Mamie Johnson is determined to be a professional baseball pitcher. From the time she insists on trying out for the all-male all-white Police Athletic League team until she becomes one of only three women to play in the Negro Leagues, this biography of Mamie Johnson's life shows that courage-and a fierce curveball-can make a childhood dream come true. Illustrated with nineteen black-and-white photographs.

Jazu
This is a very good and readable story. My nine-year old girl who is very athletic enjoyed reading it with me.

Samugor
Unusually well written for a "young adults" book telling the fascinating story of a woman who should be a household name but I'd never heard of before. Good for all ages.

Naril
Good information, but written and formatted for children. Will let my grandchildren read it. I was blessed to run into her on Negro League weekend in Detroit. Extremely wonderful and regal woman.

My seven year old daughter first saw Mamie during the Little League World Series and was intrigued. This book encouraged her so, she LOVES baseball and she is very good. People alwasys tell her she should play softball and her reasons for not playing were exactly the same as Mamie's! When she read that, she ran over to me and said, "See!! I am just like her!" That made my day. The book flows easily and is very well written. Young and old readers will enjoy this one.

My daughter said she will name her book, "A Strong Left Arm". Stay tuned.

Lavivan
