    CD Helps Paper Airplane Book Soar!

    While the patterns in this bright, colorful book look fairly simple at first glance, opportunity presents itself for extending basic patterns into highly creative, original designs based on a basic design. The book is a gift for a seven-year-old boy who is extremely interested in the science of aircraft, origami, and just having fun with airplanes. The CD will extend the ideas in the book tenfold. It's a great book!
