Pearl Harbor Child: A Child’s View of Pearl Harbor from Attack to Peace

Pearl Harbor Child is the authorʻs story of being a child living in the middle of Pearl Harbor during the attack on December 7, 1941. Dorinda tells what it is like to carry a gas mask everywhere, to have bomb shelters on the school play ground, curfews and blackouts, and barbed wire every where.


This is the only book of the Dec. 7th attack through the eyes of a native child of Hawaii who lived in the middle of Pearl Harbor. What was it like to have no lights on in the house at night, and not to be allowed out after dark, plus barbed wire on all of the beaches.

American children need to know this part of American history when the bombs fell on America bringing our country into a world war with Japan and with Germany.
