Folding for Fun: Origami for Ages 4 and Up

Written by Didier Boursin

This book has all the basic origami with patterns for a box, a plane, and a boat. But there are also some that are different and fun to try outside. This book is advertised as for ages 4 and up, which is perfect for kindergarten or as an introduction book to origami for older kids. The number of steps ranges from 15 steps for the box to 4 steps for a noisemaker.

The large pictures and clear instructions are great for ELL’s to practice their directional vocabulary. Unlike a more complicated origami book, Boursin limits the number of symbols used to 7. Boursin also uses 4 types of folds throughout the book.
