Wordless, the illustrations tell a dream-like story of a man's derailed kayaking trip that eventually leads him to an abandoned internment camp. Although I would hesitate to introduce this book in a younger classroom, it would be a thought-provoking book for an older child with extensive knowledge of the Japanese internment camps of World War Two.
Nov 07, Paige Smith rated it it was ok. I was not particularly a fan of this book. The storyline was very confusing and hard to follow. I did not understand what was happening or even what the intended meaning was.
The back matter tried to explain what was happening but I was still very confused. The illustrations to me were the best part of the book, they were done very nicely. Aug 11, Faith Cordes rated it it was amazing. Very powerful. Frightening, as it should be. Feb 14, Ali Meland rated it it was amazing.
Home of the Brave follows a man through a confusing and dreamlike sequence that begins with a fall down a river and into a dark pit and then leads to an internment camp.
The man meets two children who come from the camp and do not know where home is. He then returns to the pit and riverbank near his kayak and scatters the nametags of the children in the air. This symbolizes thei Home of the Brave follows a man through a confusing and dreamlike sequence that begins with a fall down a river and into a dark pit and then leads to an internment camp. This symbolizes their return home. The major theme in this book is the helplessness and sadness that accompanies being forced away from one's home and having one's freedom taken away.
The dark colors in the illustrations and confusing sequence of events create a sense of uncertainty, sadness, and lack of control. My mom has a close friend whose father was in one of these camps and I remember being so shocked the first time I learned about them. I think it is important to learn both the good and bad parts of our history and for this reason I am grateful Allen Say covered this subject matter.
Furthermore, I would recommend this book for the same reasons mentioned above. This book does a great job of introducing the emotion that must have been felt by the prisoners of the internment camps. It teaches children how to empathize with others and about important events in American history that are so often neglected.
This is a great opportunity for parents to engage in a serious conversation with their children. Sep 24, Stephany Nasr rated it liked it. Home of the Brave is a story about a man who after a kayak accident wakes up in a dream. He encounters two young Japanese girls who are away from "camp". At first read, the story seems like a strange dream that a man is having. As you continue to read, it seems as if the character is part of the camp too.
The images in the book are very dark, mostly black, grays and whites. The dark images enhance the darkness and sadness of the text. In the first up-close image of the girls, and the picture of Home of the Brave is a story about a man who after a kayak accident wakes up in a dream. In the first up-close image of the girls, and the picture of the group of children in the camp, you can sense the fear and confusion from the children.
The watercolors give the children an almost real appearance, and you can feel their want to go back home. The portrait landscape and framed images draws the reader into the pictures and puts a focus on the characters and small pops of color that appear.
The book has a feeling of darkness throughout and is confusing. I would not recommend this book for young children. I do not think they would understand the multiple stories being told. I would recommend it for older children.
Dec 02, Chase Vombaur rated it it was amazing. A really sad and eye opening book. It's really easy to focus on the battles occurring during world war 2. A lot of focus was put on Hitler and the Nazi camps during this time. Most people forgot a similar thing was happening in America as well.
The horrid story about a family that was put into a Japanese camp during world war 2 for supposition. A lot of people forget that these things were happening in America. I love that this book was able to convey such a strong and powerful message in a simp A really sad and eye opening book. Sign up here. Already have an account? Log in here.

Kek is then struck by a brilliant idea: They will take Gol to the zoo so she can be adopted. When he visited the zoo with his ESL class, Kek noted that there were no cows there. With the help of Lou, Ganwar, Hannah, and the local police, Kek leads Gol from the farm, through traffic, and to the zoo.
There, he and his friends convince the zoo director to accept Gol as the newest member of the zoo. Fifteen months later, Kek is with his family and friends at the airport. His mother has been found and he is waiting to be reunited with her.
