FREE DOWNLOAD µ Sadakos Cranes Ust 6 1945 Sadako’s Cranes tells the story of her battle with leukemia When Sadako hears of a Japanese legend which says that a person who folds 1000 paper cranes is gr I am not sure how to assess this book Don t get me wrong the way it is done I must say there is no problem with it Even the looks of the characters their white skin and red cheeks reminds me of old Japan just like their clothes and all so I don t think it direspects Japan The writing style is good and works well together with the narration and I don t think the subject of the book death is something small children should not know aboutThe problem is rather that this is a book for children with a very serious topic one usually only teens and adults talk about and I am no longer a child and at a small age was not exposed to stories like this so I do not know how a child would react to this book Not with a topic like thisSome people may have guessed from the cover title and the name Sadako that this is a children s book about the story of Sadako Sasaki which some claim to be the world s most famous victim of the USA s atomic attack on Hiroshima and her story became world famous through books like Sadako and the Thousand Paper CranesSo without going into any detail I do wonder whether and what a child would understand of this book Would they understand that the narrator of the book is actually Sadako s cat or what the giant black cloud mentioned refers toI honestly don t know
