Bobby Kelly is a 12-year-old Brooklyn boy who loves playing stickball in the street with his friends and cheering for the Dodgers. Bobby's dream of being part of the Dodgers comes true in 1947 when he lands the job of bat boy for the team. There's just one thing Bobby's not sure about. The Dodgers are planning to do something that has never been done before. An African-American named Jackie Robinson will be playing for Brooklyn. Bobby isn't sure how to feel about it, especially since members of his family and kids in his neighborhood don't like the idea. In order to truly become part of the Dodgers, Bobby will have to learn to accept Robinson as a member of the team and learn from his example. This fictional story looks at an important point in baseball history from a young person's perspective and highlights the time period, including using popular slang from the East Coast in the 1940s.

Up until recently, there was very little that one could do to spruce up bath time apart from the usual bottle of bubble bath or bath salts (as well as the odd yellow rubber duck). Then bath bombs came onto the market, and bubble baths would never be the same again. Traditionally round (though one can also get them in the shape of a star, heart, candy cane, or even their favorite anime character), brightly-colored, and full of all sorts of surprises from the "sedate" glitter and confetti to the more over-the-top plastic flowers and/or toy figurines, the powdery balls of wonder soon fizzed their way into the hearts of many avid bathers. With their great shows of sparkling fizz and their intoxicating cocktails of uplifting and relaxing scents, bath bombs did more than just turn the bath water a vibrant shade of pink or green: they turned each bubble bath into an occasion. Unfortunately, the rather high-price tag of most bath bombs put others off giving the experience a go. Spending nearly ten bucks on a trinket that would dissolve in seconds (not to mention go down the drain with the bath water) simply does not make sense to a lot of people. Thus, bath bombs became a bit of an impractical, unattainable luxury. Until now, that is. This book reveals the basic ingredients and rather simple process behind they typical bath bomb, and presents a tantalizing array of bath bomb recipes that can all be made at home for a fraction of their retail cost. So, whether one is looking for a way to up the ante of their bathing experience or for alternative homemade gifts that are sure to impress just about anyone, this book is a great way to get initiated into the wonderful world of bath bombs.
