A sweet story we read while learning to make paper cranes featuring real cranes in Japan. Their migration journeys leaves Yoko sad so her grandmother teaches her how to make her paper cranes. Yoko, too, must leave and go far away. She ends paper cranes to grandmother until she can return as do the real cranes.

Simple and heartfelt, Rosemary Wells never disappoints.
A beautiful book visually to get a glimpse of this amazing Japanese craft.
