Showing the video allows my students to see what they heard read to them as I use the book as a read aloud. My students enjoyed watching this video and we completed a compare/contrast graphic organizer regarding the book and the video. We had an interesting discussion.

I have had the good fortune to have found Under the Blood Red Sun as a novel to share with my middle school classes. We read the book in grades 6, 7, and 8 in a three year cycle. By the time the kids graduate 8th grade, they have read 15 novels with the class, and 15-20 more independently. Under the Blood Red Sun is a perennial favorite. The last time we read the book, we learned a movie was in the midst of being filmed, and we have watched it unfold in bits and pieces until, finally, we watched the movie together last month. All of the students, those who read the book and the new students who had not, loved the film. It taught them not only about an important piece of our country's history, but also about friendship, family, and honor. I loved seeing some of the most impactful lines from the story come to life on the screen: "Nakaji must always be a good name." I have read the book many, many times, with hundreds of kids, and I was engrossed watching intense scenes that I have imagined appear before my eyes on the screen: Ojii-chan waving the flag as Japanese planes fly low overhead; Tomi swimming to Sand Island; the pigeons. Under the Blood Red Sun is a wonderful film for a family or class to watch. The beautiful Hawaiian scenery, the characters so convincingly portrayed, the realistic footage of Pearl Harbor, the emotional scenes of Tomi and Papa, the humor of the "Rats", the life lessons kids really need today all make this a 5 star movie complimenting the award-winning novel.

Under the Blood Red sun is a captivating novel which was made into a mavelous movie! The story line starts with a hook where Tomi (the protagonist) is fighting with his nemesis. It turns out that it was a dream and that none of it actually happened. Tomi is a Japanese boy who is living on the island of Oahu during the beginning of the United States entrance into WWII. He and his friend, Billy, watch in awe as the Japanese fighters drop bombs onto Pearl Harbor. I will say no more because I do not want to ruin the movie but I can tell you how wonderful it was. My class skyped with the Producer (Dana Hankins) and the author (Graham Salisbury) who are just amazing people, inspirational people. They did an absolutely sublime job with this film! This movie is definitely worth watch, and I give it 5 stars.

This movie was exteremley captivating. I have not read the book yet, but hopefully I will one day. If the book is nearly as interesting as the movie, it will definitely by a great book. It taught about honor, pride in your family, pride in your culture, and bravery. We watched this movie in school because the older kids have read the book, and I want to buy it so I can watch it again and my whole family can watch it. This movie is my favorite movie I have seen all year! I love all the charcters and the setting. It is a great movie for the whole family. Please buy this movie you won't regret it!
