Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

up in the air All the materials and information kids need to make 16 paper airplanes, and make them fly, are included in Kids' Paper Air Plane Book by Ken Blackburn and Jeff Lammers. Illustrated step-by-step instructions show exactly how to take the double-sided, color pages included in the back of the book and turn them into planes that look like a spider, a slice of pizza and a bat, as well as more typical aircraft. The book also includes a field guide to real planes, a log to record flight distances and ideas for activities.

From the Publisher

With over a million copies in print, Workman's PAPER AIRPLANE BOOKS have (if you'll the pardon the expression) literally taken off. Written and put together by Ken Blackburn, the Guinness Book of World Records paper airplane record holder, and Jeff Lammers, a mechanical engineer, the three books in the series are providing hours of fun all around the country. Each book includes a wealth of information, instructions, trivia--and lots of spectacular paper airplanes just waiting to be cut out and given a chance to soar. Also in the series: POCKET FLYERS PAPER AIRPLANE BOOK, with 74 Lilliputian-sized planes for small spaces; and THE WORLD RECORD PAPER AIRPLANE BOOK, launching the series, an indispensable everything-you-need resource book for beginners and experts alike.

I am a reading buddy at a local school. My little buddy didn't want to read, so I bought him this book. Now when I arrive, we read the instructions, make a plane and fly it. He looks forward to reading now and has learned how important it is to follow instructions as well as wanting to know how to use the index to look up his favorite plane, who the author is, etc.

I bought this book for my son at age 5. We have been enjoying it for over a year! There are many types of planes to "build." The book provides enough tear-out pages to build each plane twice. It's a great way to spend a little time with your kids.

I highly recommend this book. We bought this for our twin sons when they were 5, and then another copy to use as party favors when they turned 6. Now they need a third copy. Its great! Spend a few minutes with your kids, teach them to fold paper, and they will have a ball for hours.

My son is six and very interested in paper airplanes. The books we have checked out from the library are advanced and hard to follow. This book gives you the pattern complete with dotted lines for folding. We made four in under thirty minutes and they all flew! This is a great book for kids and adults with no mechanical knowledge or patience!

This is a good paper plane book for kids. The pages are designed to be removed and used to make the different planes. My kids liked the colorful pages and decided to save the last copy of the idividual planes to use as a pattern to make their own planes. Warning! If you have young kids, you might want to take the pages out yourself

I first bought one of these for my then 6 yo son. He enjoyed it so much that I bought one for his friend's birthday. Finally, the light bulb went off and I bought a bunch more to have instant gifts for the plethora of birthday parties he gets invited to during the year. Boy, am I glad I did that! The cost is great, no one else ever gives the same gift, it is easily transportable, doesn't require batteries, entertains for hours without beeping or playing annoying music, and is educational (Okay, I admit that "educational" can be the kiss of death for a kid gift, but The Kids' Paper Air Plane Book is a fun gift that happens to incorporate some educational value, not some geeky educational bore of a toy that is briefly entertaining). Even the stray kid who didn't seem to "get it" at first, soon fell in love with this book. I am about to order 6 more. I need another 2 for my boys (ages 6 and 9) and 4 more as gifts. These never go out of style. BTW, I turn into Cool Mom whenever I am able to help them with any plane struggles. That doesn't happen to my 9 yo anymore. He now even makes his own awesome airplanes out of plain paper, while his non-plane-making peers look on in amazement! Definitely a gift winner! It's also easy to wrap, which is no small thing in this world of oddly-shaped packages.

The paper in my printer has been stolen, all the loose paper in the house has gone the same route. Flying through the air and landing in various places like behind the couch, under the tables, into the closets, and onto the bookshelves.

Our seven-year-old boy loves to make these paper airplanes at his desk in his room. The book has so many styles, there are plenty to share with his little sister and brother. He can easily reconstruct the styles in the book on regular sheets of paper.

He even got a first place trophy for his science fair project at school using four different plane ideas from this book. His project was "Does the length of an airplane's wings affect how long (in time) it can fly?"

A great, colorful book.
