Description: A true story of Sadako Sasaki, a young Japanese girl on the threshold of adolescence, who developed leukemia from radiation caused by the bombing of Hiroshima. While hospitalized, her closest friend reminded her of the Japanese legend that if she folded a thousand paper cranes, the gods might grant her wish to be well again. With hope and determination, Sadako began folding. Sadako's friends began to dream of building a monument to her and all children killed by the atom bomb. At the Hiroshima Peace Park, there is Sadako, holding a golden crane in outstretched hands. In a way she got her wish. She will live on in the hearts of people for a long time. On August 6 - Peace Day, people send thousands of cranes to be placed beneath Sadako's statue. They make a wish, too. "This is our cry, this is our prayer; peace in the world." Black and white illustrations. 6" x 9". 64 pp. Ages 7-11.
