As an origami enthusiast, I would definitely recommend the “Learn to Fold Origami” series to children ages 6 to 8. This time around, I received Backyard Wildlife and Cars, Boats, and Airplanes for review. I especially like the simple visuals with easy-to-follow instructions. Even younger children will be able to participate in origami folding with a tiny bit of help. For older children, besides learning how to fold origami, each origami has its own introduction. For example, children can learn some facts about a sailboat, its different parts and how it’s used, before doing the actual folding. The end of each book also has an interactive online portion or an activity, such as planning a trip, skills testing knowledge, and creating an environment. Besides being “Learn to Fold Origami” books, these are also wonderful learning opportunities for children to develop various skills: vocabulary and language, symmetry, and creativity. These books generate children’s imagination and innovation to create a positive learning environment while having fun.
