    I am a high school sophomore who had to do a research project. I was enlightened by reading this book. It is about the young lives of
    Japanese-Americans being taken in to internment camps during WWII and a librarian who gave them hope. The librarian gave these children
    books to read on  a daily basis. She was the city librarian and knew these kids well. She always encouraged reading, which the kids loved.
    Miss Clara Breed, children's librarian, knew the children before they were forced into these camps. As each of the kids were being
    taken she handed them pre-addressed postcards with her address on them. She told the kids to write her when it was safe. All the
    children wrote to her immediately. They were depressed and hated the camps. Miss Clara Breed, librarian, sent the children books to read
    while they were incarcerated. The kids loved her so much, and were thankful of her. They loved reading and just wanted out. She gave 
    them books of all levels. The kids were thankful and even created a library in the camps. Starting the library was hard because they
    started out with only ten books. This is an emotional read, because of the actual letters that are displayed in the book. As a reader i
    could feel there pain and wish i could have helped. Dear Miss Breed, is not only a great book, but an informative book, especially for
    information on internment camps and japanese culture.
