Satisfy your enthusiastic paper folders with the eight models presented in each column of this series. All the details that lead to origami success are here- the paper size is specified for each project, text instructions are augmented with small but abundant photos of the model at every stage, and there's a key to notation and visual glossary of standard folds at the front of each book. A few sentences introduce each model to provide information about the animal, holiday, or machine being built but don't get too bogged down in specifics. Similarly, the graph paper background and palette of primary colors keep things clean and streamlined. An unobtrusive arrow helps readers navigate from one numbered step to the next. VERDICT: Lots of options, clearly presented for upper elementary and middle schoolers.

Origami has been a popular hobby with many students for years, and now is appearing in schools as part of the Makerspace movement. The Origami Fun series aims to teach upper elementary and middle school students the art of paper folding. Each volume offers basic folding tips/instructions, and then provides details on how to create eight unique origami items. Each volume also offers factual information about the real-life animal, planes, holidays, etc. For example, in the Farm Animals volume readers not only learn how to create origami sheep, cows and goats, they also will learn basic information about sheep, cows and goats (what they eat, what their role is on the farm, etc). THOUGHTS: This series is a great option for schools with origami fans or looking to enhance their Makerspace collection. The instructions for creating the origami items are clearly numbered and illustrated and can easily been understood by origami novices. Recommended.
