The inspirational story of the Japanese national campaign to build the Children's Peace Statue honoring Sadako and hundreds of other children who died as a result of the bombing of Hiroshima.

Ten years after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Sadako Sasaki died as a result of atomic bomb disease. Sadako's determination to fold one thousand paper cranes and her courageous struggle with her illness inspired her classmates. After her death, they started a national campaign to build the Children's Peace Statue to remember Sadako and the many other children who were victims of the Hiroshima bombing. On top of the statue is a girl holding a large crane in her outstretched arms. Today in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, this statue of Sadako is beautifully decorated with thousands of paper cranes given by people throughout the world.

Takayuki Ishii was born in Tokyo. He is presently the pastor of Metropolitan-Duane United Methodist Christ, a multicultural congregation in New York City.

    I bought this book along with Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. Both books are great. My daughter did a book report on them. This book is the story of Sadako and the children's peace statue. This book has pictures of Sadako and her family along with the story of how her friends launched a national campaign to build the statue. It's a easy read perfect for a 4th grader. Older folks will be inspired by the story, if your child needs a good book for a report I recommend both books because the aren't that long.
