Booklist - Sarah Hunter

"Filled with colorful full-bleed illustrations, the titles in the Origami Science Adventures series playfully demonstrate basic science concepts and vocabulary with the help of an origami creature. . . .Though no one concept is explained in any real depth, each book lays out enough information for students (who may need help with terms like cochlea) to pique their curiosity and offer a general idea of how the world works." - Booklist
