Age range 5 and up Origami Peace Cranes is a multicultural children's story about the capacity for friendship in all of us, and the power that small things have to make a big difference. When Emma moves to a new town she's afraid she'll never make friends. She tries her hardest to make a good impression on her new classmates. Through an origami crane project her classmates show her that they really want to get to know her. Later, when a new family moves into her neighborhood, Emma has a great idea how to make them feel welcome! Filled with fun pictures and ideas, this story addresses the anxiety that comes with new beginnings and shows kids a way to act as a diverse community. At the end of the book, instructions for making a paper crane are included so that kids can make their own cranes to share. "Origami Peace Cranes is a book written for children but with a world message...The book is engaging, has beautiful drawings and a presents a wonderful learning lesson for children." "This book is fun and shares feelings that many kids experience the first day at a new school. There is the excitement and nervousness all rolled into one. I love the overall message though of accepting yourself and others just how each is because each is perfect as the person he or she is suppose to be...The book comes with origami paper and instructions to make paper cranes. I have made many paper cranes over the years and have to say these instructions are among the easiest I have seen." -Crafty Moms Share blog "...a beautiful story book, it's a craft, and it's a way to make friends from around the world, too!" -Castle View Academy blog
