By Jody Williams
1     Origami is an art. It began in Japan. Japan is a country in Asia. Origami is the art of paper folding. Animals or birds are usually the final product. The paper crane has become a famous work of art. Japanese tradition says that anyone who makes one thousand paper cranes is granted a wish. Some people believe this. Others do not. One little girl believed and wanted a very special wish to come true.
 
2     Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes is a story by Eleanor Coerr. She learned about Sadako while traveling in Japan. She was touched by her story. She wanted children throughout the world to learn of her as well.
