“The photos of the finished planes will have kids itching to make and fly them. Fortunately, the materials. . . are readily available, and the instructions and patterns are clear. . . A fine book for the casual enthusiast, the competitive Science Olympiad participant, or the serious future pilot.”

Christian Library Journal

“Paper Airplanes takes paper crafts to a new height. It glides just as easily into an art class as a science class. Its basic premise challenges logic and problem-solving skills.”
