One thought on “Sadako

  1. J.G. Keely

    They had us make our own cranes when we read this during middle school I was new to origami, but it only took a couple of minutes to make the crane I suddenly wondered how long it would take to make a thousand At two minutes a crane, sitting in bed and doing it for, say, eight out of my sixteen waking hours, I d be done in less than a week.This seemed funny to me, until I read that the real Sadako did finish her thousand cranes in less then a month, and kept on folding But since the book posits [...]

    And he prayed that his family would be protected from the atom bomb disease called leukemia History learning has many angles, and often than not, we tend to focus on the big, exciting events of wartime action, while forgetting to highlight the consequences of those actions.In times when leaders in the world seem to have forgotten the impact of the atom bombs in Japan, and seem to think that it is an actual solution to a pathetic macho contest, we need to step away from just giving students the [...]

    Sadako Sasaki was 12 years old when she died of leukemia This was due to the radiation from the atomic bomb that was dropped by an American pilot in her hometown in Hiroshima, Japan during World War II She was 2 years old then and had no memory of the war whatsoever This 1977 book, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes by Eleonor Coerr, a Canadian American, was published twenty two years after Sadako s death To explain the title, there is this belief in Japan that if you are sick, fold 1,000 pape [...]

    Before reading Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, I had two misconceptions about the story First, my image of Sadako in the story was the same with the scary and long haired Sadako of The Ring and The Grudge Second, I thought the cranes were those large equipments used for lifting heavy objects like those used in construction sites.After reading reviews about the book, however, I realized that the Sadako in Eleanor Coerr s book is a true story of a girl in Japan who died at the age of 12 And [...]

    Here s the thing about this book I have a great nostalgic attachment to it from reading it when I was a kid I loved it I was touched and affected I still think Sadako s story is important and I think it puts a face on a time in American history that we don t talk about enough with kids.With that said, after a discussion in my Children s Literature class, I m torn There are inaccuracies in this book Culturally, it is unrealistic to believe that Sadako wouldn t have known what the paper cranes sym [...]

    3.5 SPOILER ALERT A wonderful and moving story of a young girl, Sadako, sickened with leukemia due to radiation effects of the atomic bomb dropped in Hiroshima, Japan in World War II Also relating the Japanese legend of folding 1,000 paper cranes to the gods for good health, which Sadako pursued She died before completing the thousand but her friends from the bamboo class completed the thousand in her honor and produced a compilation of her letters and journal to make a book they called Koheshi [...]

    At age two, Sadako Sasaki was a survivor of the bombing of Hiroshima When she contracted leukemia from the radiation, she began folding origami cranes A Japanese legend contends that if a person folds 1,000 paper cranes then their gods will grant that person one wish.Upon reading this book, sometimes adults get wrapped up in historical debates I ve heard some people decry the American bombings, while others criticize Japan s expansionist agenda I think this book is very open about its pacifist m [...]

    Quick, easy read written at a juvenile level I liked the story and feel it is a great gateway in to many discussions about war, whether using atomic bombs was a moral thing to do, the long term consequences of our decisions I just read a review stating that the real Sadako finished her 1,000 paper cranes while in this book has her dying that is not really a spoiler because the prologue lets us know that the little girl dies before she finishes her cranes If that is true this book is getting one [...]

    This is a really sad story, so it is difficult to give it a higher rating I read this because I recently had an ELL student join my class, and this was her summer reading book It is a very simple children s story about the legend behind paper cranes I found it very interesting since I did not know that the origami was linked to a legend In the story, Sadako suffers from the effects of the bombing of Hiroshima less than a decade prior Since I had recently read Hiroshima, it had even impact for m [...]

    A very beautiful but sad story of a young girl who dies of leukemia after experiencing the atom bomb being dropped on Hiroshima during WWII However, she becomes the inspiration for a monument that has been built at the Hiroshima Peace Park honoring her and all the children who were killed by the atom bomb I have seen this monument and the paper cranes that have been made to commemorate those lives lost during that horrific time It is a very emotional experience.

  22. Amy

    Childhood Hawaii Asian influences all around me Probably read this in fourth grade or something in Mrs Murakami s class Good book though.

  23. Aleph Turing
