Summary: A biography, stressing the courage of the first black player in professional baseball. ValueTales is a series of simple biographical children's books published primarily by the now-defunct Value Communications, Inc. In La Jolla, California. The forty-three books were written by Dr. Spencer Johnson and Ann Donegan Johnson, and illustrated by Stephen Pileggi. Each book gave a simplified biography of a historical figure as an allegory, illustrating the value of a positive characteristic. Each volume was a white pictorial glossy hardback book around 60 pages long with a brightly colored cartoon of the biographee. This series is now out-of-print and the publisher is no longer in business. Loved by teachers and parents alike still today. ; Value Tales Series; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 63 pages; 31930
