WE ARE THE SHIP The Story of Negro League Baseball

by | Read by Dion Graham

Children Ages 8+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

"Negro baseball was fast! Flashy! Daring! . . ." Young listeners will agree after hearing this compelling, accessible history of the players who, when they were shut out of major league baseball, loved the game so much that they found a way to keep playing. Dion Graham's enthusiastic, welcoming narration is a perfect match for the text. He helps the cast of characters—Rube Foster, Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson, James "Cool Papa" Bell—step right out of history and puts listeners with them in the dugout and on the bus traveling from game to game. A bonus CD includes an interactive slide-show gallery of Kadir Nelson's gorgeous, evocative illustrations so that listeners can put faces to all the names.
