In A Scarf for Keiko, it's 1942 in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles, where Jewish American and Japanese American families like Samís and Keikoís were neighbors. At school, their class is knitting socks for soldiers. Sam is a terrible knitter and Keiko is a good knitter, but some kids at school don't want anything to do with Keiko because the Japanese have bombed Pearl Harbor and anti-Japanese feelings are running high. Sam knows he should stand up for whatís right, just like his older brother who is fighting the Nazis in Europe. So when Keiko's family is forced to move to a camp for Japanese Americans, Sam finds a way to demonstrate his friendship for her.
