Place Where Sunflowers Grow

A Place Where Sunflowers Grow  (English and Japanese Edition) - Amy Lee-Tai I was given a copy of the Garth Mower memorial edition of this beautiful childrens' book, and am so glad that I did.The book, printed in English and Japanese, is the story of Mari and her family. They have been moved from their home to an internment camp during World War II, and Mari wonders whether she will ever see her friends again.An age-appropriate look at the challenges of living in an internment camp, "A Place Where Sunflowers Grow" is based on actual experiences of author Amy Lee-Tai's family members. The art work is stunning, and the story is one of hope in unlikely places.
