Our third grade class just finished reading Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. We really enjoyed the book because it taught us a lot about Japan's culture and some of its recent history. We learned how our country's decision to drop the bomb affected so many families in Hiroshima. The book taught us not to give up hope even when things get tough. We enjoyed using Sadako's stategy of folding origami cranes to help keep her spirits up. It was fun to compare our two cultures and to find out that although we seem different, we are really very much alike. We recommend this book to kids aged 8 and up because younger kids might have a hard time with the subjects of war and death. We hope that you will enjoy this book as much as we did!
