Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Do you know how to fold a piece of paper to make it look like a paintbrush? How about a simple box? This beautiful hardbound book will teach you how to turn an ordinary piece of paper into an extraordinary thing. This book contains an introduction with a history of Origami, directions for how to use the book, directions to make basic folds, and directions for folding over 35 different items. Each fold design contains step-by-step directions (normally 10) complete with pictures, a difficulty scale, and an origin of the base of the fold. The objects range from a nurse page-marker to a cactus in a pot. The index at the back of the book is helpful in finding various objects. The projects are more complicated than most elementary school students would be able to complete, so this book would be ideal for those of middle-school and even high-school ages. 2001, Sterling Publishing Company,
