Today I had the tremendous honor of interviewing a member of the famed 100/442nd Regimental Combat Team. Yutao Mine (pronounced Minnie) was a Staff Sergeant in WWII with the all Japanese-American unit that would go on to become the most decorated unit in Army history. Out of 14,000 soldiers, roughly 9,500 of them received Purple Hearts. Mr. Mine claims two of those. The unit also received 4000 Bronze Stars, 560 Silver Stars, 52 Distinguished Service Crosses, 22 Legions of Merit and 21 Medals of Honor (whew)! President Obama signed the order to give these brave Japanese-American soldiers the Congressional Gold Medal in 2010, the highest congressional honor. Mr. Mine discusses combat, racism, fear, his experience as a POW, and the rigors of fighting Nazis in WWII in this interview. Thank you so much to Nancy and Yutao for sharing this amazing history with us!

I was thrilled to find this book at the library (it's a rare Japan-themed book I'm not reviewing). Recently, I've attending screenings of films devoted to Japanese-American internment at the local Asian American film festival and I want to learn more about this period of history

Thankful for educators who put books into readers' hands! Thank you @mrsmontjoy for the Jasmine love! 💗🥁👩🏻 #jasminetoguchi #jasminetoguchibooks #drummergirl #chapterbooks #kidlit #japaneseamerican #taiko #Repost @mrsmontjoy (@get_repost)

One of the best things about Thanksgiving Break, catching up on my TBR stack! I have several copies of Jasmine Toguchi in my classroom already so I'm excited to read the newest book in the series, Drummer Girl. Publishing April 2018.
Update: You'll love the main character, Jasmine. The writing and voice that shine through, leave you feeling like you're pals. Jasmine is determined, but readers will relate to her struggle to find a talent, believe in herself, and have fun while performing. I also loved the Japanese words and the direction to make your own Hachi-Maki, Japanese headband, which is worn to catch sweat and to show perseverance during activity! Love it @d.michiko.f !!! #BookVoyage #mglit #mrsmontjoyreads #weneeddiversebooks

Rebel against the mainstream narrative. Be larger, richer, grander than the Asian stereotype. Rebel against some ideas our parents might have. But don't lose sight of your culture or your people.

I’ve had a pleasure of visiting a farm I’ve been wanting to go for a while. Otow orchard was established in 1911. This grandma is a second generation of Japanese immigrants, her Japanese name is Toyoru, is 101 years old! Her parents stared the persimmon farm before the Great Depression. They experienced WWII, went to the internment camp, redeveloped the farm again after the war. She’s been doing this her whole life in this land. Her daughter and son in law, and their children help running the current farm. They produce many different fruits and produce, but the reason I came here for is the traditional hand-dried persimmons they make at this farm. The labor intense and time-consuming process creates exceptionally sweet and tender dried persimmons. It’s nothing like other kind of dried persimmons. The whole family was so nice and happy to share their history, we had such great time learning about the history of this farm and the family.
