Holiday Gift Giving Book#5 - (ages 7+)

We Are the Ship: The Story of Negro League Baseball
Nelson, Kadir. (2008) We Are the Ship: The Story of Negro League Baseball. Jump at the Sun. ISBN-10: 0786808322.
A history of the Negro League Baseball League in 96 pages.

Great for baseball fans, those interested in the history of the American culture, and history in general.
Pair with the unabridged CD which includes the text (performed by Dion Graham) and the paintings by Kadir Nelson. Also includes an interview with Kadir Nelson.
Or simply include a new baseball for those young fans that will want to become the next stars of baseball.
