Description
It's 1942, after Japan has attacked Pearl Harbor during WWII. Now all Japanese Americans living on the West Coast of the United States are being forcibly moved into internment camps. The US government has decided that anyone of Japanese descent might be dangerous. Miss Breed gives her young patrons penny postcards, saying, "Write to me." And they do. Back and forth over three long years, Miss Breed and many children correspond. Meanwhile, Miss Breed writes articles and letters to point out the mistreatment of Japanese Americans. Using excerpts from the letters that children wrote to Miss Breed, author Cynthia Grady presents a difficult part of our national history with honesty and hope.
