Ruby  – I thought Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes was a very sad and emotional story. I thought it was so nice that people gave her beautiful paper so she could make paper cranes.

 

Anna – I thought that it was really sad, but majestically told in a way that made it beautiful. Most aspects of it were good but some bits made me feel a lot of pity.

 

Nitya- It is an inspiring book that tells us to always keep trying and to achieve your goals.

Annabelle  - It was very interesting. I felt sorry for Sadako because she tried so hard, had hope and spirt so she wouldn’t die.

 

Cate – I felt very sad for Sadako. It made me imagine what Sadako felt.

 

Josiah – Sadako is remembered at Peace Day. She built hope. I felt sad for her.
