Gr 2–4—Well-lit photos with enough shadow so that readers can clearly see the dimensionality of the paper models make the instructions in this series unusually easy to follow. And there are lots of them, as many as a dozen steps, each with a picture and curved and dotted arrows to show the direction of folds. There is some accompanying informational content about each animal—bright images of interesting or adorable critters add liveliness to the layouts. Pastel backgrounds and darker borders in a crumpled paper texture unify the pages of each project and don't distract from what's important.
VERDICT Clear, easy-to-follow instructions distinguish this series for younger folders.
