Origami Peace Cranes, Friendships take Flight
by Sue DiCicco
Emma just moved to a new school and was sure no one would like her. Her hair was too plain, her dress was too plain, even her lunch was too plain. Several kids opened conversations, but Emma assumed they were better than her and didn’t respond. The class learned to make peace cranes and when Emma returned to her desk, she found a desk full of cranes with personal notes. She began to think that, “maybe, just maybe, me is enough!” A wonderful story that gives voice to all the ways kids think no one will like them. Included in the book are a pack of origami sheets and instructions on how to make a peace crane to share with others.
