Children of the Paper Crane: The Story of Sadako Sasaki and Her Struggle with the A-Bomb Disease: The Story of Sadako Sasaki and Her Struggle with the A-Bomb Disease Reviews
The subtitle is so misleading. This book is much more than the story of Sadako, a 12-year-old girl in Hiroshima who battled leukemia for 9 months and then died, all ten years after the bombing. Her story is told, but also the development of the Children's Peace Movement and the construction of the Children's memorial in the Peace Park in Hiroshima. Our tour guide this summer had referred to controversy surrounding the building of the memorial, and this book digs into that. It even provides information about the years following the bombing that I didn't know, such as restrictions that the United States put on the citizens of Japan regarding publication of any accounts (essays, poems, etc.) of the boming or its effects. This is a very readable, very worthwhile book.
Years ago I read the story of Sadako Sasaki and the Thousand Paper Cranes. This book, however, is not fictionalized. I enjoyed hearing more about the children and adults who pushed to have a statue made in Japan for the children who were affected by the Atomic Bomb. It was interesting and much more in depth than the fiction story I read as a youth.
The book Children of the paper crane was an exciting book. During the 4 weeks that we had to read, I really enjoyed it. When I finished the book I actually teared up. Sasako had died by getting the A-Bomb disease. When she started making paper cranes, before she died, she succeeded by making 644 paper cranes. On top of her grave, her friends continued to make these paper cranes. This book was an okay book.
Interesting backstory of Sadako Sasaki, and of the 1000 paper cranes.
i think its really sad and cool
