Love in the Library
by Maggie Tokuda-Hall, Illustrated by Yas Imamurad
Love in the Library tells the true story of the author’s grandparents, who met and fell in love at the Minidoka incarceration camp which imprisoned Japanese-Americans during World War II. It was among the books of the camp’s library that Tama and George were brought together, and later a family was born of their love. Now their child is telling this wonderful story.
Love in he Library is a beautiful and heart-warming picture book, although it is for an older child due to its historical nature and content. It can also be used to teach children about racism, and show them how hope and love can overcome all obstacles.
