Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good short interpretation of a wonderful story.  Oct 27, 2007
The pictures bring a bright character to this classic story about a girl with a tragic illness. It is shorter and easier to understand for a somewhat younger audience and a good introduction to this story.
Great Teaching Tool  May 14, 2007
I am a history teacher and use this to explain the "other side of the story" to my high school students. Then I got a math teacher to teach them how to fold the birds.
It's a beautiful story about the triumph of a young girl's spirit and the collateral damage of war.  Aug 28, 2006
I realize a few people feel that this is a propaganda book. In this case I recommend telling your children about Pearl Harbor, the Rape of Nanjing, and Unit 731 and explain that in wars it's usually civilians, in some cases ones who weren't even born at the time, who end up suffering the most. What I hope people will remember about this book is a young girl's bravery and triumph over fear in facing a fatal illness, and the loving support of her classmates.

Excellent book to enhance a history lesson  Nov 29, 2003
Whether you are dealing with elementary children or even high school, this book sheds a new light on United States history. We are not usually taught about the destruction that our nation caused with the atomic bomb, but this book makes it very personal. However, it is a tear-jerker! That could be helpful to expose children to the feelings that come along with death of a family member or friend.
The tears flowed and knowledge is gained....  Oct 6, 1998
This is an excellent adaptation of the story of Sadoko. The book highlights the important parts, but keeps it on a level for children. It causes tears, hope, and courage in all that read it. It has a fasinating plot for such a short book. The illustrations are breathtaking and really portray a sense of the lessons of the book. This book is well worth reading for every age level. My husband and I both cried, as well as my thirteen year old sister. There is a lesson and a tear for everybody in this book.
