Next month, our sixth-grade book club will read Marisa’s choice, 1001 Cranes by Naomi Hirahara. Marisa says this is not the story about the girl who had cancer after the WWII atomic bombings, but that the book does contain instructions for making origami peace cranes. Or you can find video instructions for making an origami crane at youtube (longer, with audio, but paper is white on both sides) or metacafe (shorter, written but no audio instruction, paper is purple on one side, which makes it a little easier to watch).
If you have read this book, feel free to leave comments about it. The same goes for all our book club posts, which you can trace back through this post:
