Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book

"After a brief introduction explaining folding symbols and outlining materials, simple stepped directions for nine different paper airplanes are accompanied by colorful, easy-to-follow pictures, making these “lazy afternoon” projects pleasingly accessible to early readers. Boxes with “flying tips” explain how to launch the planes, each uniquely shaped to fly a bit differently than the others." - Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book
