I have to admit, even though I've read several [a:Gyo Fujikawa|30312|Gyo Fujikawa|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1516986329p2/30312.jpg] books, I had no idea Gyo was a woman. ( )
"Pencil in hand, faced with an unjust world, Gyo Fujikawa created a new future.
At 5, Japanese American Gyo Fujikawa didn’t yet know what she wanted to be. She knew a pencil fit well in her hand, and she liked to fill empty pages with pictures of her world. As she grew, Fujikawa used her passion for art and her mother’s activism to guide her education and inspiration. Defying gender conventions, Fujikawa attended college in 1926, when few American women did. Studying in Japan, she exchanged restrictive art classes for travel and aesthetic immersion. Back in the U.S., her family was sent to an internment camp on the West Coast while she began an art career at Disney on the East Coast, causing Fujikawa to lose her desire to draw. Eventually, she found a way to wield her craft to fight injustice. Her first book, Babies, published in 1963, featured racially diverse babies playing together and became a huge success despite publisher prejudice and misgivings. Morstad’s artwork precisely balances white space with vignettes, black-and-white illustrations with eye-catching color. Often mimicking Fujikawa’s style, Morstad layers engaging details and deep emotional resonance onto Maclear’s spare, poetic text. Backmatter includes a detailed timeline with photos and quotes, an extensive note from the creators, and a selected bibliography and sources list.
A splendid picture-book celebration of an artist and activist." www.kirkusreviews.com, A Kirkus Starred Review
Creative and stunning art.
making pages of children's books reflect racial diversity in 1963
Ressenya escrita per a Crítics Matiners de LibraryThing .This book is a beautiful representation of the Japanese american community. I loved reading this story with my children in the classroom and hope to continue to read it each year.
The pages and illustrations catch the attention of the readers and pull you into the story making you listen to each word and connect with the characters.
Overall it was an amazing story that I and my students really enjoyed.

"Gyo Fujikawa's iconic children's books are beloved all over the world. Now it's time for Gyo's story to be told--a story of artistic talent that refused to be constrained by rules or expectations. Growing up quiet and lonely at the beginning of the twentieth century, Gyo learned from her relatives the ways in which both women and Japanese people lacked opportunity. Her teachers and family believed in her and sent her to art school and later Japan, where her talent flourished. But while Gyo's career grew and led her to work for Walt Disney Studios, World War II began, and with it, her family's internment. But Gyo never stopped fighting--for herself, her vision, her family and her readers--and later wrote and illustrated the first children's book to feature children of different races interacting together."--
