Follow 10-year-old Joe Joe Rawlings as he faces challenges and encounters guidance from a rich cast of historical characters in this first of at least four titles in a series of books written for African American children ages 6-10. Just Call Me Joe Joe deals realistically but also in an age-appropriate manner with issues and challenges facing African American children and families in an urban environment. In this first installment, the serious-minded but likeable Joe Joe faces a shop owner who lashes out at him, assuming that Joe Joe was part of the gang that trashed the store just moments before Joe Joe entered. Joe Joe has to find the courage to return to the store and confront the owner with the truth that he was not part of the gang. In this lesson on self-esteem Joe Joe discovers Negro league baseball legend Cool Papa Bell as he faces a life situation that results in his own moral, spiritual, and emotional growth.
