Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

Making a strand of one thousand origami cranes has become an international movement for peace, happiness, and health. This book is an update of the Heian classic, with new photographs and projects, plus forty-eight tear-out sheets of colorful chiyogami to get you started. Included is the story of Sadako in Hiroshima and suggestions for how cranes can be used at schools and hospitals, as wedding gifts, and by people everywhere to demonstrate their commitment to world peace.
