Peace Crane

After learning about the Peace Crane, created by Sadako, a survivor of the bombing of Hiroshima, a young African American girl wishes it would carry her away from the violence of her own world. On August 6,1945, a bomb fell and a peace movement began. Out of the ashes grew the legacy of Sadako, the child who folded a thousand paper cranes. Now the authors use majestic oil paintings and heartfelt verse to express the hopes of another child, trapped in the violence's of today's world, who dreams of finding the true spirit of Sadako--peace for our troubled time
