Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes illustration will appear here.
Personally I loved the book. I thought it was an excellent book. If you like touching true stories then you'll love it , because it really did happen. There is also a picture book but I didn't like it nearly as much as the novel. They left out most of my favorite part's but the illustrations where beautiful. In Japan they erected a statue in Sadako's honor. Sadako's courage is honored in Japan and it should be in all of our hearts, too.
I recommend it to all age groups. Even adults love it as much as me and I love it a lot. I even heard about a professor reading it to his college class. At the end of the book there wasn't a dry eye in the place. I think that even boys would like it. Grade seven students that are studying Japan should read it.
