This book was a great resource as a teacher and a scout leader. The origami projects were embellished after being constructed to become something more than just folded paper, allowing the kids to use their imagination to decorate them. Included are seasonal and holiday projects. I only wished there were more of them, but it gave me ideas to look at other traditional origami projects in a different way. 9-10 year olds can do projects independently from the book. Definitely worth it as a resource.
