Students invited to join AMP Reading Ranger Program

Students in the 3rd to 5th grades are being invited to join the American Memorial Park for a two-day reading program this month.

Called the Reading Ranger program, it will take place on March 23-24, 2017, from 9am to 4:30pm. Park rangers will be reading Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes by Eleanor Coerr.  This book tells the story of a girl from Hiroshima who becomes sick with leukemia in the years after the atom bomb was dropped and her race to fold 1,000 paper cranes.

After reading the book, participates will engage in fun, learning activities and learn about the story’s connections to the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas and the park. Students will also help to fold 1,000 paper cranes that will be sent to the Children’s Peace Memorial in Hiroshima, Japan, in recognition of World Peace Day.

To register, pick up a registration form at the American Memorial Park Visitor Center.  For more information, call Jovanna Mafnas at 234-7207 x 2020 or via email at
