Synopsis

Folding for Fun: Origami for Ages 4 and Up For Ages 4 Up 16 Easy Origami Projects by Didier Boursin

16 easy origami projects ideal for children 4 and up. If a child can fold a piece of paper, he or she can learn the basics of origami. Plus, once finished, it's fun for that child to decorate and play with the object just created. Expert author Didier Boursin demonstrates all the folds in easy, individual steps using clear, colourful drawings and engaging photographs of kids making origami models like a boat, a fish and an airplane. Only seven types of folds are used in the entire book, and a visual glossary at the beginning carefully shows what each fold instruction means. Some of the projects have only three or four folds. Selected for their simplicity and certain appeal to young children, the 16 origami projects include: 3-D 'hello cuckoo!' card; Balls; Floating boat; Twirlers; Storybook; Magic paper; Racing sailboats; Moo-ing straw; Stairhopper; Big-eared rabbit. Any preschooler can do origami. Folding for Fun makes this ancient art accessible for them by turning each project into a playful and rewarding activity that also produces a toy.

Reviews

This how-to will appeal to a wide range of children (preschoolers will need help) as well as to the adults and teens who work with them.--Gillian Engberg Booklist (01/01/2008)

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
