Sadako and the 1000 Paper Cranes
by Eleanor Coerr

‘Hiroshima-born Sadako is lively and athletic—the star of her school’s running team. And then the dizzy spells start. Soon gravely ill with leukemia, an aftereffect of the atom bomb that fell on her city when she was only an infant, Sadako approaches her illness as she did running—with irrepressible spirit. Recalling a Japanese legend, Sadako sets to work folding paper cranes. For the legend holds that if a sick person folds one thousand cranes, the gods will grant her wish and make her healthy again.

Based on a true story, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes celebrates the courage that made one young woman a heroine in Japan.’

“An extraordinary book, one no reader will fail to find compelling and unforgettable.”

Softcover. 79 pages. Reading level: Ages 4 – 8. Suitable for all ages.
