"With Kosinski's concise, expressive prose ("I am his Origami Crane, and he is My Boy"), the crane narrates their poignant friendship...Sánchez's eye-catching digital illustrations, rendered in a vivid palette of warm reds, oranges, and yellows, as well as cool blues, present striking angles reminiscent of the paper crane's folds...This story-time selection may encourage both questions about growing up and the role of a child's treasures in their changing lives. A visually and narratively compelling tale of childhood friendships that evolve and grow." --Kirkus Reviews

"Imaginative and tender, this story may inspire conversations or projects around special objects in readers' families." --School Library Journal (starred review)
