All incoming 5th graders are required to read In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson by Bette Lord

"Shirley Temple Wong sails from China to America with a heart full of dreams. Her new home is Brooklyn, New York. America is indeed a land full of wonders, but Shirley doesn't know any English, so it's hard to make friends. Then a miracle--baseball--happens. It is 1947, and year_of_the_boar.jpgJackie Robinson, star of the Brooklyn Dodgers, is everyone's hero. Jackie Robinson is proving that a black man, the grandson of a slave, can make a difference. And for Shirley as well, on the ball field and off, America becomes the land of opportunity."--Provided by publisher.
