Book Review: World’s Best Origami, by Nick Robinson

When I was a little girl, I loved doing origami, the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. I had a friend named Junko who was living in the United States for a few years with her family, and she taught me how to make cranes, little boxes, sailboats, and all kinds of little origami figures. If you’ve ever done origami, you know that it’s important to use the right paper, to cut it to the right size, and to make your folds “just so.” One bad fold and your creation doesn’t turn out well.

Now there’s a wonderful book that shows you how to make over 100 origami models by renowned origami expert, Nick Robinson. But don’t let the term “expert” scare you because his book, World's Best Origami, is designed for people of all skill levels. With its clear and simple directions and diagrams, anyone can do origami! In fact, your children are already doing a form of origami when they fold paper airplanes.

Chapters in World’s Best Origami include:

Chapter 1: Origami Basics
Chapter 2: Birds
Chapter 3: Animals
Chapter 4: Flowers
Chapter 5: People
Chapter 6: Containers
Chapter 7: Geometric
Chapter 8: Modular
Chapter 9: Practical
Chapter 10: Fun

There are also pointers on perfect folding, selecting paper, and much more. The illustrations are very clear and easy-to-understand, along with written instructions. Origami is a wonderful activity to do with your children. You’ll have great fun creating works of art just by folding paper! Pick up a copy of World’s Best Origami by Nick Robinson and get started!
