This is really a nice book on the subject of discrimination and Japanese internment camps as it would have been experienced by a child. It was beautifully illustrated and the text was just right. I liked it. As good as Heroes by the same author/illustrator team. ( )

A young Japanese-American boy narrates this story of his experiences in an internment camp during World War II, describing how his father helped to create a baseball field and league in the camp, and how he played with one of the children's teams. Not very good at first, the boy improves, and when he and his family return home after the war, his new skills give him a means of finding his place with his peers...

Having recently read Marissa Moss's Barbed Wire Baseball, a picture-book biography of Kenichi "Zeni" Zenimura, a Japanese-American baseball player who did indeed create a baseball league at the Gila River internment camp, I was reminded of Baseball Saved Us, which I read years ago, when it first came out. It's clear that Ken Mochizuki's fictional story is inspired by Zenimura's real life one, although his own parents' experiences in the Minodoka camp in Idaho must surely have also been an influence. I found the story here moving, although I did think that the transition from camp to post-camp life was very abrupt. One moment the boy is hitting a home run in a baseball game at the camp, and then on the next page his family is back home on the west coast. Although this was rather jarring - there needed to be some bridging incident, to tie the two parts of the story together, I think - I nevertheless found the narrative engaging, and entered into the main character's feelings throughout. The artwork was likewise engrossing, building upon the emotional undercurrents in each scene. Created in an unusual medium - scratched out from encaustic beeswax on paper, and then colored with oil paint - it was very expressive, and often had an interesting sepia tone that matched the story quite well. All in all, a solid children's book about a very difficult and shameful moment in American history, one I would recommend to picture-book readers looking for stories about the internment of the Japanese in World War II, or about baseball as a meaningful experience in a child's life.

A Japanese kid living in an internment camp tells about his experience. Many Asian-Americans were placed into camps because of the way they looked (Pearl Harbor). To help create a sense of normalcy, they created a baseball field at their camp with the resources they had. A sad story about discrimination and feeling isolated. His new knowledge about baseball helped him belong and be appreciated. ( )

This book, a Spanish translation, speaks about how many Japanese Americans copped with the hardships they faced in Japanese Internment Camps. Sports, and more specifically baseball kept many Japanese Americans occupied with a fun activity. This book shows the human aspects of life in internment camps.

Grade 1-4–During World War II the author's parents were sent to an internment camp in Idaho. That family history led to this poignant story about a young Japanese-American boy in an internment camp and the baseball diamond that gave the internees a purpose in life and a way of passing the time. The young boy's triumph in a game played while in captivity helps him when he returns home and continues his baseball career. The baseball heading over the fence on the last page tugs at the heart of readers as it symbolizes freedom lost, and regained. Author Ken Mochizuki reads his award-winning book (Lee & Low, 1993). There is some soft background music, and a few gentle sound effects, but the power of the words need little embellishment. Young students will be made aware of the overt racism Japanese-Americans faced during this period of history. This treasure of a book is well-treated in this format.
