Chasing Vermeer (After Words) by Blue Balliett
Chasing Vermeer (After Words)

Dar, May 15, 2014

Very fun kid's mystery. Kids are great at questioning how things work, as does the main characters, Calder and Petra work together to put all of their clues to the test and help to recover a stolen painting. I also like that there are some math puzzles involved and the illustrations have some clues hidden inside to solve an additional puzzle. A nice, clean kid's mystery with lots of twists and turns.

Star Wars Origami: 36 Amazing Paper-Folding Projects from a Galaxy Far, Far Away... by Chris Alexander
Star Wars Origami: 36 Amazing Paper-Folding Projects from a Galaxy Far, Far Away...

Dar, July 30, 2013

Origami-wise, this book is only for the advanced folder. I have pretty good origami skills, but half of the illustrations/steps are missing. Fold lines are missing in the illustrations, it seems to jump and not give all of the steps in many of the projects. I was very disappointed. My daughter loved the Origami Yoda series and was hoping for more of the same, but sadly, this is out of our league. The informational parts are good for kids and other Star Wars fans, however.

My 7 yr old daughter loved this book and just finished the second in the series. A bonus, she got to fold Origami Yoda. She was tickled with the instructions for origami.
