    4 Una y otra vez y otra vezSTARS At school and at football practice, Chuck did the same thing When he learned new things and when he had to do the same thing over and over, he thought about standing by the railroad tracks, throwing stones again and again until de go it El fin de semana fui a la feria del libro The Word on the Street Como saben yo no leo libros en f sico as que me la pase todo el tiempo en el rea infantil buscando libros para mi hija, le compramos 6 en total y nos quedamos con ga [...]

    Wish this was a better adaptation of the author s book for adults, but sadly, it fell short, kind of literally I did not know the last spread was going to lead into the copyright page it felt very abrupt with the pace of the narrative throughout the book Matt James s illustrations use paneling and present the visual passage of time innovatively but not all spreads impressed me.

    When I was a kid, the name Chuck Ealey made you think of astounding passes on the football field But before he was a Canadian Football League star, he was a black boy growing up in the segregated US His determination and that of his hard working mother ensured that he not only got to be an amazing and undefeated quarterback in high school, but also got a college education before a career as a football star in Canada.This is an excellent book about children dealing with racism and self determinat [...]

    57 The Stone Thrower by Jael Ealey Richardson, illustrations by Matt James I was not aware that this was a children s book when I ordered it, and a picture book at that I thought it was a sports biography of Chuck Ealey, who played for the Hamilton Tiger Cats in the 1970s and led them to a Gray Victory in his first season The illustrations were colourful but fairly child like For the right age group, this would be a good anti racism inspirational story.

    This is a life story of the African American boy, Chuck This story is helpful to tell children how African American people got treated unequally in the past and to explain what racism is It shows how much people have lost their opportunities to live such better lives because of the unequal treatment and segregation in the past.

    A sweet bio picture book about Chuck Ealey, written by his daughter Jael Chuck was a great quarter back, winning every high school and college game he played A nice bio and a great addition to any library.

    Written by the daughter of quarterback Chuck Ealey, this picture book tells how one boy overcame the odds against him in order to play football in college and professionally Ealey grew up in a segregated neighborhood in Portsmouth, Ohio, where life was hard Sometimes he didn t have enough to eat, and wondered how he could ever accomplish his mother s dreams of him leaving the place far behind him Not only did he study hard, but he practiced throwing a stone at a letter on a passing train Over ti [...]

    Review originally posted on Children s AtheneumAn inspirational story by Chuck Ealey s daughter, this is the story of rising above circumstances and one young man s dedication in the face of many obstacles I absolutely love picture book biographies and biographies in general because they give us stories of people who don t show up in the normal school curriculum For an aspiring football player, the sports obsessed kid, and the African American child, Chuck Ealey can serve as an important role mo [...]

    This was especially interesting book to me because for whatever reason, I didn t realize there was a Canadian football league until my most recent trip to Canada I found myself in a restaurant with a game on and I couldn t place the teams though it looked like an NFL game Here is a story of a fabulous football player who is excluded from quarterbacking in the NFL simply by the color of his skin It s told by the daughter of the quarterback Chuck Ealey This is a piece of history that I think will [...]

    I don t know the popular adult biography that inspired this adaptation, but this was an interesting story It reveals the life of a little known football player for many, primarily because his professional career happened in Canada Still, his is a story of persistence and overcoming obstacles, the sort of story that will be both inspiring and educational to young readers It did feel like an odd way to end the book though Thankfully, the end notes did the job that the story failed to Maybe the adu [...]

    I m not a huge football fan but I really enjoyed this story of Chuck Ealey, written by his daughter Jael Ealey Richardson It is a wonderful story to share with children about perseverance and work ethic, especially when you have a dream of goal that you want to strive for Matt James terrific illustrations compliment the story.

    Great story of determination and perseverance GORGEOUS illustrations Beautiful author s note love that the author is the daughter of the boy man the story is about Definitely one to add to my library And yours

    The story of Ohio born Chuck Early who, despite his outstanding record as a high school and college quarterback, is rejected by racist NFL and instead plays for the Canadian Football League where he is named a Most Valuable Player.

    Three themes in a book, segregation and poverty NFL football Child s resilience Chuck s being firm and found out a way to develop his own residence through throwing a rock to the goal eventually helped him to be a successful player.

    An excellent sport story of a person who proved to the world that he can succeed over poverty, naysayers, and the color of his skin.

    This biography tells the story of Chuck Ealey, one of the first collegiate African American quarterbacks.

    I appreciate how the author talks about segregation because it was just enough to encourage questions from my daughter The story is great too

    The true story of an African American football player from the wrong side of the tracks in the 1950 s and his determination to be the best.
