Abstract

Discusses five books for young adults by author Yoshiko Uchida. Notes that these books, accessible to children in grades 5 and above, describe the prejudice against Japanese Americans, internment camps, and upheaval, sorrow, and anger spawned by the American government’s racist actions. Shows how the books can prompt discussions about cultural differences, prejudice, friendship, and governmental responsibility towards citizens.
