A boy folds various origami animals and descriptive haikus and short free-form poems accompany each one. Also depicted is the creativity the child uses to create the animals and play with them, such as the hole-punch snow or the picture of all his animals with accordion-fold fans taped to their backs. Includes imperfect origami such as the camel or the dowdy-looking moth and demonstrates to the reader that sometimes origami doesn't come out perfect and it's OK.

I love the combination of the poems and origami in this collection of short poems. The word/action connection is a strong one and is helpful in encouraging the imagination and creativity of young readers. This book of poems is a wonderful way to bring poetry into art classes and projects. ( )

A collection of poems about origami animals and the boy who makes them. It's really incomplete without the directions for making the creatures featured in the poems. ( )

Good collection of poems. The title made me think the poems would talk through how to fold certain origami creations, however, this isn't the case. However, the story is of a boy who folds many animals for his collection. ( )

This book is a poetry book that teaches about the art of origami. In the book there are thirty two poems, creatively written to write a story about a boys origami animals he makes. This book would be a fun lesson for third-5th graders on poetry and origami. The children could make their own origami animal and write a poem about it.

Join a young boy as he creates a world filled with origami creatures of all shapes and sizes out of an array of brightly colored paper. From roosters waking up and buffalo pawing the tablecloth to cheetahs racing lions and moths that yearn for butterfly colors, here is a glimpse into the vibrant imagination of a child.

Award-winning author Kristine O'Connell George's thirty-two spirited poems combine seamlessly with celebrated artist Lauren Stringer's luminous illustrations to create a poetry collection that is truly like no other.
