An ancient Japanese legend says that anyone who folds 1,000 paper cranes will be granted a wish, while others claim a strand of them promises happiness and eternal luck. Cranes are a symbol of peace, which was made famous for many through the story of Sadako Sasaki. In books like Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes and The Complete Story of Sadako Sasaki and the Thousand Paper Cranes, young readers learn about her effort to fold 1,000 cranes to aid her recovery from leukemia--brought on by the atomic bombs in Hiroshima when she was just a girl.
