Summary of Making Origami Paper Airplanes

This book is definitely a "solid" origami book for beginners. As always, LaFosse does a great job in choosing easy, kid-friendly models that are described by clear instructions. However, as far as paper airplanes go, there is nothing particularly special about the models within the book. This book would sit well along side its companions in the "Kids'a Guide to Making Origami" series, but it would be weak as a stand alone volume.
