Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764122304, Paperback)

Kids learn to create whimsical creatures and fascinating objects out of paper, with help from this bright and cheerful introduction to the Japanese art of origami. A total of 18 fun projects start out simple and become increasingly complex as boys and girls progress through the book. All needed supplies are listed and are easy to obtain. They include square sheets of colored origami paper (24 sheets come with the book), plus a tube of stick glue, a pencil, a ruler, felt-tip pens, transparent tape, needle and thread, and scissors. Projects include a "Bookmark Buddy" with comical eyes and hands, a paper lantern for the Christmas tree, a funny, bouncy, creepy caterpillar, a paper prehistoric pterodactyl monster, a bright two-color Frisbee that really flies, a top that really spins, and many more. Here's a treasury of fun for classroom projects, for rainy days at home, and for pre-holiday activities. Clearly illustrated step-by-step instructions fill every page. Younger kids will need supervision when working on projects that require scissors or needles. (Ages 9 and older)
