I love the patterns in the illustrations in this book. One small note: the text says Yoko's card says "Soon I will come back to Japan, just like the cranes." But the card in the illustration says Happy Birthday, Grandma. That's probably supposed to be the outside and the message is inside the card, or so I'm guessing. Just something I noticed. It doesn't take away from the story at all though.
