From the author of Baseball Saved Us comes an intergenerational story that describes how a Japanese-American family deals with the painful legacy of war.

This book was both touching and an excellent educational experience. Mochizuki writes a story drawing on a difficult part of history for Japanese Americans, yet makes it easy for elementary-school aged children to understand. I highly recommend this book for parents and educators.
