About this title
This is the story of a Japanese American boy and his family who are interned during World War II. Young Junior doesn't quite understand what the internment is all about but through his eyes we are able to see how it has affected the adults around him. Fortunately for Junior, he has Grandfather and from Grandfather he receives a special message of hope. This picture book introduces children to the history of the Japanese American internment. 36 pages, hardbound with paper jacket; full color illustrations and a brief historical overview of the Japanese American internment.From the Publisher:
The publication of this book was lauded on the front page of the Pacific Citizen, the newspaper of the Japanese American Citizen's League. It was the first picture book designed to introduce young people to the history of the internment of Japanese Americans during World War Two. While later picture books have used the internment as a setting for stories that could easily be set in a variety of time periods, this remains the only picture book to focus upon the internment and its impact upon the families who were forced to endure it.
