It's a complete zoo you build yourself, with a fold here, a tuck there, and a (very occasional) snip! Every one of these creatively constructed origami animals makes an excellent project for adults and children to do together; as the paper creature emerges, youngsters will improve their dexterity and cultivate their imagination. Simple, colorfully illustrated preparation exercises help you perfect basic folds and shapes. Then come the remarkable animals, all with a fully realized habitat. Mother duck and ducklings stay by a pond (made of simple blue silk or a mirror), A lion's den features a full pride of big cats (tigers too)in different positions; add a bush and tree to give them a little shade. Plus: a family of penguins, beautiful long-necked giraffes, an elephant house with lots of babies, a load of reptiles-including a croc, a full Noah's Ark, and more!
