This novel is based on the story of Sadako Sasaki and is a must read for many reasons! It is set in Japan after World War II. The short novel is a fictional retelling of the story of Sadako Sasaki, who lived in Hiroshima at the time of the atomic bombing by the United States. This young girl is athletic, happy, full of plans for the future, and then suddenly falls ill with leukemia at age 11. Shortly after, Sadako dies of the disease as a long-term effect of the atom bomb dropped on her city when she was 2 years old. She has a strong will to live and starts folding paper cranes because an old Japanese legend says she will be granted a healthy life again if she is able to make 1,000 of them. The myth ends up having no power against the reality of the nuclear age, and Sadako stands as a symbol for the many victims of the most brutal of human inventions. Based on a true story, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes celebrates the extraordinary courage that made one young woman a heroine in Japan. I desire to use this short novel to initiate a reflective discussion with my English students on the effect of war on the lives of innocent children. The novel's target age is Middle School aged children, but it is definitely worth reading at any age. This book could be used in a variety of ways for many different subjects. For example, I would love to incorporate this novel into a geometry lesson by having my students create origami. ( )

Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes focuses on a young Japanese girl in the aftermath of the dropping of the atomic bombs who gets sick with leukemia and starts making paper cranes in the hopes of getting better. This book is aimed at a young audience and would be great to use in a classroom! Although it is a rather sad book, the book does a great job of showing the massive impact and ripple effects the dropping of the atomic bomb caused for Japan. This book also does a good job really showing the Japanese culture as well to its readers.

We read this in school and, of course, then tried to make 1001 paper cranes. ( )

First, about the physical book: this is short. For an adult, you can easily read it in an hour, maybe two if you are studying the illustrations, looking facts up, or trying to learn how to fold your own crane. The illustrations, however, are well worth studying; they are lovely and touching and fit the story very nicely.

Now, about the story: I had to keep in mind that its audience was much younger than I am. It didn't shy away from the dark -- but very real -- subject matter, but it did approach it from the eyes of a child. It talks about the aftermath of the bombing of Hiroshima, and its main character is based on a real girl who died of leukemia as a result of the atom bomb. It's going to be dark. However, it also manages to portray hope along with the darkness, and while most people will cry at the ending (I did) it's not a book that leaves you feeling miserable.

I read this book because I intend to give it to my niece, who has recently been interested in origami cranes. She saw a musical version of this story, Peace On Your Wings, so I thought she should read the original -- but that I should read it first, just to make sure it wasn't too dark. It isn't. This book may inspire tough questions to answer, but isn't that the point of good literature? ( )

Brings the story of the cancer-ridden aftermath of the Hiroshima bombing to life for children who may never have heard of it. ( )

Don't you remember that old story about the crane? Chizuko asked. It's supposed to live for a thousand years. If a sick person folds one thousand paper cranes, the gods will grant her wish and make her healthy again.
