Baseball Saved Us
Judyh avatar reviewed on + 227 more book reviews

This is fictional account based on the true story of Japanese citizens interned at camps during WWII as if they were not loyal to the USA after the Pearl Harbor attack. It is not a happy story in all ways, but there were some positive things that show the endurance and perseverance of humans under tough conditions. The Japanese-Americans, adults and kids, set up baseball fields and teams and kept themselves busy and entertained playing baseball. It is a great way to teach kids about this time in history.

The author's parents were sent to the Minidoka camp in Idaho.
