Red Berries, White Clouds, Blue Sky
This is my top recommended historical fiction book about the Japanese internment camps during World War II. Tomi Itano, a 12-year-old second-generation Japanese American, lives on a strawberry farm in California. Everything changes for Tomi after the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor, and she eventually finds herself in an internment camp, trying to adjust to a new life. This book shows the true, hard facts about a dark period of history, but mixes it with the powerful messages of hope, forgiveness, and service. This is a very worthwhile and engaging book for children of all ages.
