Book Review: Easy Origami Animals by John Montroll

Posted by Elle  |  at   2:48 PM No comments

I received this book in exchange for 
an honest review from NetGalley.
Easy Origami Animals by John Montroll is a compilation of twenty-three easy animal origami projects for beginners.  Most of the origami animals that can be made from this book can be done in sixteen steps or less! 

There are pages in the beginning of the book showing you what the symbols used in the book mean, as well as a guide to the basic folding techniques used in origami.

You should also know that origami paper is white on one side and colored on the opposite side and can be found at arts and crafts stores or online.  Shadings in the book refer to the colored side of the origami paper.

Some of the cool origami animals you can make using this book are a dog, parrot, hippopotamus, squirrel, rabbit and pig to name a few.  All of the directions are shown in colorful diagrams and there are some scenes depicted with several of the origami animals which is a very nice touch for teachers who would like to make a scene with the animals once the students complete their origami projects.

This book can aid teachers in the classroom at school, community centers providing before or after school care, day camps or for the parent looking for something to keep their child occupied on that rainy or snowy day.
Available on Amazon.
