I think that this book will speak to younger children

Paper Wishes is about a young girl named Manami who is separated from her dog during a sudden relocation to an interment camp for Japanese Americans. The experience hurts her so much, she stops speaking. Throughout the book, Manami builds and nurtures relationships with those around her, and though silent, eventually discovers her strength. There is a little bit of violence, but nothing graphic.
