    I really enjoyed Roberto and me I would recommend this book to anyone likes time travel or likes baseball To me so far it was the best one out of the series I ve read so far I was really hoping that Stosh would complete his mission even though I kind of had a feeling that he wouldn t complete his mission.

    About 20 years ago, Honus Me was published At that time, I met Dan Gutman He came to the school I taught at and worked with our students I believe we had him twice On my classroom bookshelves, I have several books autographed by him I read Honus Me as well as Jackie Me Honus was better, but both were okay.It s been a while since I read anything by Gutman, although my students continue to read him I always remark that he lives about 40 minutes from us.I am in a reading challenge this About 20 years ago, Honus Me was published At that time, I met Dan Gutman He came to the school I taught at and worked with our students I believe we had him twice On my classroom bookshelves, I have several books autographed by him I read Honus Me as well as Jackie Me Honus was better, but both were okay.It s been a while since I read anything by Gutman, although my students continue to read him I always remark that he lives about 40 minutes from us.I am in a reading challenge this summer One of the categories is to read a New Jersey author When I browsed Gutman s books, I saw Roberto Me and thought it would be nice to continue the series I grew up collecting baseball cards Roberto Clemente was my favorite ballplayer Why Because he was my father s favorite player My first game was a Pirates v Phillies twi light doubleheader Clemente was stretching on the field before the game I was there with my autograph book I got Stargell s autograph and a few others When I asked my favorite player for his, he refused GrrrWell, the book started out all right Joe traveled in time using a baseball card His mission here was to warn Clemente not to get onto the plane that killed him on NE 1972 That was about half the book It was all right.The balance of the book was propaganda for climate change policies Yup, Joe s great grandson travels from 2080 to bring Joe to the future No airplanes, plastic, etc as they have run out of fuel The plea is to travel back in time and enact changes in consumption so the future generations can thrive.Blech It is so pushy Gutman s politics are well presented here Again, blech I won t return to this series

    love Roberto Clemente I ve never watched him play and yet I love him I love the way his playing style is described graceful, royal, etc , I love his humility, I love that he broke down barriers for Latino players and most of all I love how much of a humanitarian he was He is all around amazing and every time I read about his plane crash, my heart breaks Thus, I was surprised that the main character of this book didn t know much about Clemente He knew a little, but not about his great hum love Roberto Clemente I ve never watched him play and yet I love him I love the way his playing style is described graceful, royal, etc , I love his humility, I love that he broke down barriers for Latino players and most of all I love how much of a humanitarian he was He is all around amazing and every time I read about his plane crash, my heart breaks Thus, I was surprised that the main character of this book didn t know much about Clemente He knew a little, but not about his great humanitarian works or how he died I wonder if part of the reason I knew about Clemente already I like baseball but I don t know much about statistics or the history was due to my Latina heritage Clemente is a huge inspiration to many Latino baseball players and I m pretty sure the whole Latino community adores him Regardless, every lover of baseball should know about him.As a full disclosure, I was tempted to give this book a near perfect rating because it was about Roberto Clemente Obviously I didn t and that s because I felt there were some small issues with the book that added up to it not being as good as I hoped My biggest complaint was at how little time was spent on Stosh interacting with Clemente I wanted them to talkand really get into the issues of the day and how Clemente felt about them Instead, the book feltlike the author trying to explain all about Clemente in a few chapters, it didn t flow, it readlike a nonfiction book with a few random bits of dialogue thrown in I also wasn t pleased with the future aspect I won t give too much away, but I didn t enjoy it i wantedClemente time and felt that it came off as very preachy.With all that being said, I was able to see the connections the author was trying to make between Clemente and the future part hint it has to do with social justice , I just wish it hadn t resorted to scare tactics I did like the constant action that occurs throughout the story And really the series is a fun way to help kids learn not only about great baseball players, but also about the time period the players lived in Stosh goes to Woodstock, watches Clemente play and does a host of other things that should give younger readers a better idea of what life was like in the 60s It s not a very complex look, but it provides a good building block If I had known nothing about the 60s or Clemente before reading this book, I would have wanted to learnASAP.Roberto Me was a story that I unfairly had high expectations for Thus, I don t think I enjoyed it as much as I could have Nevertheless, everyone needs to learn about Roberto Clemente the Incredible Quote that I shared is the true definition of incredible So very inspiring The story is engaging and Stosh is starting to really notice girls, which is cute to read about and I have no doubt younger guys and girls will be able to relate I could even relate to some of his feelings Which is a good sign I also like that Stosh is maturing, learningabout responsibility, helping others and recognizing his talents In his own words, If you could do something that nobody else in the world could do, you would want to do it, right What a waste it would be to have a special power like this and not use it pg 18 The baseball statistics and history facts aren t too in depth to make the story tedious, instead they keep it interesting I m pretty sure you can start anywhere with this series
