Reviews for Paper Airplanes: Flight-School, Level 1

School Library Journal Reviews 2010 November

Gr 3-5--Using the premise of lessons in a flight school, this series takes paper-plane enthusiasts from basic models in the first level to more complicated projects in the fourth. The standard introduction for all the books, which includes a list of basic materials and an overview of folding instructions and techniques, is followed by spreads of photo-illustrated directions for each plane. The traditional as well as original designs have fun names like "Streaking Eagle," "Lazy Lander," or "Space Bomber." Comments expand upon the planes' characteristics and abilities--when flying the "Warthog," enthusiasts are assured not to "worry about hitting the wall. The Warthog's snub nose can take a beating" (Captain). Along with hints on how to hold the plane for takeoff to maximize its strengths are suggestions on conducting friendly competitions with the finished products. Sure to keep readers busy for hours.
