I read the book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes by Eleanor Coerr a couple of months ago for school. I really liked it and thought that making all those cranes sounded really cool. I was going to start making cranes asap, but I forgot all about it. A couple days ago I saw something that jogged my memory so I started! I have made 31 so far. I'll have to make five a day 'till my b-day to do it but I'm being positive!
Wish me luck!
Here's a link that will explain the history of the cranes more thoroughly . It has some pretty pictures of other people who have already folded a thousand cranes .
