Picture Books for Young Disaster Survivors

By Avery Fischer Udagawa, Bangkok

The 3.11 Picture Book Project in Iwate (Ehon Project Iwate) is an initiative to distribute picture books to children in earthquake- and tsunami-devastated areas.

Lynne E. Riggs, Sako Ikegami, and Chikako Imoto of the SCBWI Tokyo Translation Group Listserv translated the text for the English website, which includes news copy and details about the project’s progress.

The message on the home page reads, in part,

We believe,

A book can bring a child’s smile.
A book can give a child happiness
A book can give a child hope
