Baseball Saved Us by Ken Mochizuki
In the book Baseball saved us many lives were changed. I thought that it was a good book because of the picture. We think that it was great because wealso like baseball. The pictures are detailed and lifelike. On page 4 you could tell how afraid he was when his dad yelled at him. In addition, when the kid looked at the guard, you can tell that the guard was frowning from the illustration. The story would make you think it is real. Explains all the things that you would think would happen from reading the title. You would be cheering on the kid as if you were his friend. If your into baseball, you would adore this book. All the people use all their effort to make a baseball field. On page 6 and 13 they play a baseball game, where many things happen.
We thought the book was still great and alive. The drawings helped you explain everything and the story makes everything real or you think. If your into baseball, you will adore this book.
Inspirational  Feb 16, 2007
The book Baseball Saved Us by Ken Mochizuki is a book on baseball. This is based on Japanese camps in World War II. This book shows pride about how they made something useful by playing the game.
There are three reasons you should read this book. One reason is because It is an inspirational book. It shows how Japanese made it through the war and being in a camp. Another reason is because it spotlights our mistakes in the past. Putting innocent victoms in fenced camps, even though they had nothing to do with the war was a mistake. Another reason is because it teaches us that you can make something out of nothing. They made a baseball field out of a dirt field.
We Recommend this book because it's an inspiration to everyone. It shows our past mistakes, so we don't repeat them in the future. It also teaches us a lesson because we can make something out of nothing.

This book was about a boy and his family when america was at war with jaspan. The boys dad dicided to make a baseball field and everyone hekp it eas like the real thing. The boy was not such a good playaer but he practiced. After the war ended he went back home it was bad nobody talked him and also made fun of him. Basebasll season came and he palyed for a team there to they made fun of him saying Jap's no good. That same day he bated and he made jhi steam win. This sotry show the struggle and getting out it just by playing baseball.

Mochizuki, K. (1993). Baseball Saved Us. New York. LEE & LOW BOOKS.
The story of "Shorty" and his family living at an interment camp during WWII can be used when teaching students about war, especially WWII. Younger students can relate to the character of "Shorty" and his struggles with fitting in and the hardships he feels among peers. Older students can debate the equality issues and the effect war has on people concerning race, religion, and nationality. The issues of prejudices are revealed through the eyes of a young Japanese-American boy. This story revolves around baseball, an all American great pastime. Baseball is the answer because the Japanese-American's are American's. The injustices in this book are well written to inform a large audience at many age levels.
