Review: Fred Korematsu Speaks Up

Fred Korematsu Speaks Up Fred Korematsu Speaks Up by Laura Atkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed the format of this book, and I feel like it will make it quite accessible to readers. The book alternates between poems focusing in on specific moments of Fred's life, and then pages of factual information with photographs, illustrations, and timelines. I am definitely interested in reading more books from the Fighting for Justice series.
