Set in an incarceration camp where the United States cruelly detained Japanese Americans during WWII and based on true events, this moving love story finds hope in heartbreak.
To fall in love is already a gift. But to fall in love in a place like Minidoka, a place built to make people feel like they weren't human??that was miraculous.
After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Tama is sent to live in a War Relocation Center in the desert. All Japanese Americans from the West Coast??elderly people, children, babies??now live in prison camps like Minodoka. To be who she is has become a crime, it seems, and Tama doesn't know when or if she will ever leave. Trying not to think of the life she once had, she works in the camp's tiny library, taking solace in pages bursting with color and light, love and fairness. And she isn't the only one. George waits each morning by the door, his arms piled with books checked out the day before. As their friendship grows, Tama wonders: Can anyone possibly read so much? Is she the reason George comes to the library every day? Maggie Tokuda-Hall's beautifully illustrated, elegant love story features a photo of the real Tama and George??the author's grandparents??along with an afterword and other back matter for readers to learn more about a time in our history that continues to

Gr 1–4—Love is a miracle that can grow in the most unlikely of places. Based on true events, this is a gentle story
about finding love and a future during bleak internment in a Japanese camp; though the main characters are older,
the draw of this book is for all ages.

A lovely picture book about an awful time in our history - the internment of Japanese Americans.

Purchased after reading a twitter thread about the author and Scholastic publishing where they wanted to distribute her book but only if she removed all discussion of racism from the author’s note.

How blind to ask such a thing of a book about dealing with the impact and anguish of blatant racism. Just terrible.

Happy to support the author with my purchase.

Family Picture Book Read-Aloud Afternoon: A Nine-Book Pile!

Librarian romance! Even during the miserable and unforgivable period of Japanese-American internment during World War II, two unjustly incarcerated Americans find momentary escape and even love in an Idaho wasteland. Sweet!

It's disgusting that the current political climate has mired such a nice little book in an awful controversy:

Hit me in the feels why don't ya?!

Minidoka is not a shining ray of sunshine in Idaho's history. I mean, Japanese internment camps aren't anything to be proud of period. But as an Idahoan, I struggle with their being on in my state.

But this story reminds that beauty can come from ashes and pain. That words sometimes escape and sometimes words can embody a variety of emotions.

"The miracle is in us....as long as we believe in change, in beauty, in hope. That miracle is hard to find sometimes. But it is in all of us."

Lyrical and gorgeous, am I right? ( )

I picked up this book from my local library because of the news stories telling about how Tokuda-Hall was offered a deal with Scholastic if she omitted a part of the author's note at the end talking about how the racism that allowed the Japanese Internment Camps is the same racism that still exists (and flourishes) in today's America. I don't think I would have heard of this book otherwise; I'm not generally in the market for picture books these days. However, I'm very glad that I did hear about this book and read it. It's a very important topic to learn about, and the hope and joy that was sometimes found in the camps is a good reminder too. I am not excusing what happened; it was wrong then, it is wrong now. But I do appreciate stories of hope that flourish in adversity. If you are able to, I suggest you read this book and share it widely also. (Plus, the illustrations are lovely!) ( )
