The Japanese in America. In America Series.
Leathers, Noel L.
The life of Japanese immigrants in America is explored, and the accomplishments of Japanese Americans are reviewed in this book which is part of a series for children. The wartime contributions and experiences of Japanese Americans, including the experience of relocation camps, are described. Particular attention is paid to the experience of Japanese immigrants in Hawaii. As Japanese Americans became acculturated, they encouraged their children to attend public schools, where classes were taught in English, but many Japanese, especially in Hawaii and California, also sent their children to classes in Japanese after the regular school day. Education has certainly been one of the factors contributing to the success of the Japanese in America. (SLD)
