Grade 4-10?Organized chronologically, this book captures the broad sweep of the Japanese-American experience. Each of the six chapters offers a succinct historical presentation followed by first-person accounts. Relying on oral histories and original documents, both pictorial and written, the Hooblers have truly humanized historical events. Students and teachers will find that the anecdotal information enlivens their lessons. General readers will appreciate the clarity of the writing, which brings the details and concepts of the past 150 years of Japanese American history into focus. Because of its reader-friendly design, one could read this book like a National Geographic, skipping from informative captions to boxes of intriguing tidbits. Like a family album, the pages of the book are filled with finequality archival black-and-white photographs that tell a story. The subjects of these photos, generally posed to present their best to the world, invite readers into their lives and share with them their fears and hopes as they settle into their new land.?Susan Middleton, LaJolla Country Day School, CA
