Baseball Saved Us | Ken Mochizuki

Pickpick

Challenged in 2006 for using a derogatory word to describe the young Japanese American MC, this book touches on the Japanese Interment camps in the US during WWII and how baseball helped the MC cope and excel. This #PictureBook is probably better suited for an older child, and one that especially likes baseball. The illustrations add to the dusty, hot atmosphere of the camp setting. #BBRC #LetterC

LibrarianRyan Not heard of this one. Stacked 4d
Leftcoastzen I love this book! 4d
mandarchy This book pairs well with Dear Ichiro by Okimoto. 4d
Librarybelle @LibrarianRyan @Leftcoastzen This particular edition came with the book on audio. I did not listen to it, but I think that‘s an awesome way for kids to immerse into the reading - listening to the book while following along with the printed text and viewing the illustrations. 4d
Librarybelle Good to know, @mandarchy ! 4d

Carmela Full of Wishes | Matt de la Pea

Get ready to be misty eyed with this one! Carmela is celebrating her birthday and has a ton of wishes, some that will definitely pull at your heartstrings. The illustrations are gorgeous. I found nothing remotely objectionable about this, and yet I saw this on two separate banned/challenged lists. Go figure! #BBRC #PictureBook #LetterC

LibrarianRyan I would say to my TBR but it‘s already there. 4d

Catch-22 - a novel about an American bomber squadron trying to survive the war over the closing months of WWII. It was filled with ridiculousness and dark humor. I‘ve never read anything else like this! I read this in high school to earn extra credit and this got me hooked on reading as a hobby.

I‘m still singing the praises of Blackout, albeit that it‘s LONG…. but I‘ve never felt so entirely immersed in 1940s London by any other book #letterB and of course Crossing to Safety is a gem of a book I need to reread every few years #letterC
