Children's LiteratureOrigami is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. This book gives the reader simple instructions for twenty-nine projects that build upon one's skill in origami. Each project includes a special tip that will help the object turn out better. Many items become toys when completed; they can be decorated and used as gifts. The fox finger- puppet is a clever origami creature that could be included in various stories. I've always enjoyed the Japanese paper balls and the directions for folding one are included. Links to Internet sites for origami ideas and other origami books are also listed. A small investment in a package of origami paper and this book could provide many hours of pleasure for some lucky child. 2000, NTC/Contemporary Publishing, $8.95. Ages 7 to 12.
