This is a great book. My children were really interested in reading more about the bombing of Japan when were through. We are doing a WWII unit study so this fit right in with our book list. They have a section in the back that gives instructions for making origami cranes.

Sad and sweet... this was my daughter's favorite book from the time she was 6 until she turned 9. It is good for people who have an interest in death and dying and the spirit of those final days.

Based on a true story about a girl that was born in Hiroshima, Japan. She developes Leukemia from the radiation and recalls a Japanese legend. So she sets out to fold 1000 paper cranes. Good book we enjoyed reading about the Japanese customs.

While living in Japan, author Eleanor Coerr decided to learn as much about Sadako's story so that she could write a book younger children to read. Written at the 5th grade level, this short book contains several powerful black and white illustrations.

True story about a little girl who lived in Hiroshima in Japan during the time when the atom bomb was dropped. Sadako is considered a heroine to little children even to this day.

I loved this book when I read it for the first time as a child & I loved it reading it again as an adult. It really puts a human face on the after effects of war.
