"Children will be delighted by these colorful books. While each book perforce must contain some of the same information in terms of the basic folds, materials, etc., an effort is made to vary what is included in the “fun facts, glossary, and “read more” sections with little duplication. Easy includes such projects as the simple seven-step paper cup, while Difficult has a 35-step frog. Some of the projects are purely decorative, while others have practical application, such as bookmarks, envelopes, and boxes. All of them have clearly illustrated diagrams and attractive photos of the completed projects using different colors and textures of paper. In order to experience success, readers should use the books in order.

"These four books will take children ages 8 and older through steps to complete origami designs. Each volume begins with an introduction, a materials page, and a how-to page that contains photos and written instructions for practicing the variety of folds used throughout the book.
The books explore a range of objects to make, from a simple paper cup in the Easy volume to a crested bird in the Difficult book. Every project has color photos of the steps with caption instructions below and a picture of the finished product. Many of my third-grade students had success with Easy Origami and Not-so-Easy Origami. Paper cups, bookmarks, and a few airplane models were evident all over our classroom. Students followed the directions without teacher assistance and instructed one another. I am sure they could advance to the more difficult editions with more practice and a little patience. Those with origami experience would probably enjoy starting with the advanced-level texts.
These books would be wonderful for an enrichment or extension activity after studying geometry. The origami books would also work well in an after-school program or camp." - Teaching Children Mathematics, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
