There is a lot of interest in @GeorgeTakei's memoir in graphic novel format, THEY CALLED US THE ENEMY (mine included/book pre-ordered). In the interest of @ncte's #BuildYourStack initiative, I am sharing Larry Dane Brimner's VOICES FROM THE CAMPS (Franklin Watts 1994). #bookaday
Larry Dane Brimner's work here situated the reader six years after President Reagan's signature upon a national apology to those affected by the relocation of Japanese Americans in the early '40s. The voices invited and included in this book are still important to readers.
And this is not to spark debate around circulation/weeding (I recognize both necessity and the charge), but I bought this discarded book. From Berkeley. It's last checkout only four years after it's publish date. Who knows this book?

A problem of the anthropomorphic presentation within picture books we might share with younger, will-be readers is that they are read aloud without further appreciation of shared traits or characteristics with the human reader. Story is read. Left at that. #DisruptTexts 1/?
Presented here is a case for moving from “left at that” to “leads to this.” @ProfessorNana calls this “laddering.” I like to think of this as “leading.” But, in order to do it, one must have a deep awareness and appreciation of picture books both past and present. #DisruptTexts
Here, for #bookaday day reading,I was reminded of a 1971 William Steig title while reading @carlsafina’s 2019 adaptation for young readers. Texts separated by almost fifty years now side-by-side for deeper consideration for both lead and need reader alike. #DisruptTexts
