Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
up in the air All the materials and information kids need to make 16 paper airplanes, and make them fly, are included in Kids' Paper Air Plane Book by Ken Blackburn and Jeff Lammers. Illustrated step-by-step instructions show exactly how to take the double-sided, color pages included in the back of the book and turn them into planes that look like a spider, a slice of pizza and a bat, as well as more typical aircraft. The book also includes a field guide to real planes, a log to record flight distances and ideas for activities.
