  1. Firstly, our thoughts and opinions on the story is that the story is very emotional and touching. Also, it builds up suspense at the start; but on the other hand, it is quite sudden and the death of happens quite soon.
    When we read the story, it made us feel shocked from what can happen to a two year old from a nuclear bomb. It is scary! It makes us feel emotional because she dies at the age of twelve. As well as that, she had good determination for making cranes (not the metal towers).
    We have learnt that you should live your life; don’t fight in the war!

  2. – Outstanding
    – Unbelievably sweet
    – Magnificent
    – Beautiful
    – Wonderful
    – Upset because she died of Leukaemia.
    – The lovely girl wanted to make 1000 cranes so she could make a wish but unfortunately she only made 644 before she passed away.
    – We have learnt that the young girl was a really nice and that we should never give up even if you know you would never get there.
    – That she never gave up even though she knew that she was going to die.
    – Proud and we learnt never to give up on a friend.
    – Yes I would because it is very meaningful.
    – Yes because she is a really nice girl and she should have more friends then she has.

    Sadako should have not died there was no right for her to die. The young girl ,was nice but sadly she died. Her father said “the bombing was 10 years ago!” Her parents were heart broken. Sadako and her friend started making 1000 cranes but the 644th crane was the last she made…

  5. What are your thoughts and opinions on it?
    Sadako’s Cranes for Peace is a very emotional tale. We think that the way the author described her last dream was so heart felt we couldn’t believe it was a true story. The author made the story very descriptive and it painted a picture in my head.
    How does it make you feel when you read it, why?
    Very sorry for her family and school friends as she died at such a young way in a horrible way-even though the bomb set off ten years before her death. Hannah felt as if she was going to CRY! When it said “she folded her last crane. Number 644” I’m sure everybody felt so solemn because it sounds like she finished until it says it was 644 which means there is something wrong; she stopped working on her crane.
    What is Sadako’s dent in the universe?
    She made everyone relies that the Nuke bomb was a massive thing. When she got ill, the doctors might have had time to make cures for other people with the disease. Also her story made people in Japan very moved.

  6. What are your thoughts and opinions on it!
    At first I thought it was a good story, but when we got told that it was a true story, all of us were surprised and began to appreciate and respect the story more. Due to the death of an innocent child.
    How does it make you feel when you read it, why?
    It made me feel upset, but at the same time it made me feel happy, because Saduku died but her school friends made a statue for her to be remembered. It made me also feel grateful for being alive.
    What have you learnt from the story?
    To respect the life that is given to you, and that life isn’t always give you the best of things. Death isn’t always

  7. I thought it was a very surprising story of how it changed to happy to sad.
    It made me feel emotion with dread.
    I learned that there are two types of cranes.
    To make 1000 cranes to get a wish to cure her dieses.
    It makes me feel nerves is she going to hit her goal.
    I would recommend this story to children to give them knowledge about Sadako and the bomb.

  8. Due to this story being true, feelings vary on it. The writing is very well written and it really gives the reader a idea of why it must have been like for Sadako when times were tough. Also it makes you feel quite emotional and you want to find out more. The fact that it is a true story and is told around the world (as well as Japan ) as an inspiration is amazing. It must have been truly difficult and a sad time because she would have been remembering her family and then she got cancer. It made you feel miserable because you can sympathise with her because we have all experienced tough times in our lives. We have respect for this tale because of how brave she was, truly…
    It makes us feel really miserable because it’s upsetting to know someone is in grave danger or has a life threatening disease such as leukaemia. Contrary to Sadako having this disease we feel that we need to remember to be careful with what we do and where. It is a must that we do this. Making you feel honoured to be able to know this story because it makes you feel important. Then you can pass down this message to people who need it.
    We have learnt from this story that you should be grateful that you don’t have cancer or anything that kills you. We are perfectly fine and that is a gift to us and we should be thankful that we have it. But that is to say that you still should be careful and check your health regularly. Also it has taught us that you can still do what ever you want even when your in a difficult position.
    Sadako’s dent in the universe is that you should never stop doing what you love ever for anything or anyone. Also to keep on going even when things aren’t going as planned.
    We feel that Sadako’s dent in the universe is important and should be known around the world. Everybody should hear her tale and know what she was going through. Maybe they would realise how great a person she was and take on the advice she left and use it. Life would be better if we were like her.
    Yes we would recommend this story to people of all everyone of all ages because it is inspirational and you should respect what it’s about. It really brings on a positive message to everyone. It doesn’t matter what age you are or who you it just matters that you know. As I said everybody could learn lots of things from this and could use it greatly.

  9. Sadako’s Cranes for Peace!

    Sadoko lived through the nuclear attack but lost one family member. Now it is peace day, she and her brother (Eiji) are going to the peace park to remember all of those who died. A few weeks later, Sadako was diagnosed with leukaemia and set out on a quest to make 1000 paper cranes, but something terrible happened…

  10. Eliza: It’s a sad story how she died. My heart broke! She died from Leukaemia a very dangerous illness, cancer type. Her family and friends were upset. It’s a true story so it’s very sad!!!!
    Alina: I think it’s a very emotional story. Due to the fact that, the little( not so little ) girl died because of a horrible American nuclear bomb. It spread the disease and they were still in the city 10 years after the actual war.
    Alexandra: I think it’s really sad when they say that its bad news and that she was infected by a type of cancer called: Leukaemia

    Have you ever had a bomb drop on your home town?

    Sadako Sasaki has her life changed forever. She was 2 when the bomb fell on her city. Scared her mother rushed her out but 10 years later (when she was 12) she developed a life-long disease that was caused by the bomb. Leukemia. Her best friend had told her of a legend; make 1000 paper cranes to get a wish…
    What will she do.?.
