written by Eleanor Coerr, illustrated by Ed Young
Of all the books I read with Ama, Sadako is definitely one of the ones I most associate with our summers together (a few others are Harry Potter, The Giver, and Holes). After we read it, Ama taught me how to fold paper cranes and we made them out of everything (mostly old magazines) and kept them in a large paper grocery bag.
I don't remember this edition that well. Probably because I had a different copy at home and only read this one at Ama's one summer. I enjoyed Ed Young's illustrations, but the definitive edition for me will always be the paperback.
