I was recently contacted to review the book Testing the Ice by Sharon Robinson (the daughter of baseball legend Jackie Robinson) and Illustrated by Kadie Nelson. I along with my two teenage daughters read this book individually and shared our thoughts and opinions about it. We all came to the same conclusion that the book was well written and the illustration was beautiful and unique. I really think this book is about bravery and unconditional love of a father. I won't lie, I had tears in the end. This book would be a great asset on any bookshelf and because it is an easy read, it would be great in the elementary school classrooms. It is a big book so you can really see the details in the pictures. Testing the Ice also makes a great gift especially with Holidays coming up.
Here is your chance to win your very own copy. Our sponsor has offered one grand prize winner the opportunity to win a copy of the book along with a cute scarf, hat and mittens (no specific color) gift pack. 4 additional readers will win 1 copy of Testing the Ice.
