A great first book of paper airplanes for a young child. This book is a nice,
gentle read, with great experiments throughout it's entirety. It teaches children all
about the important forces that act upon any anircraft in flight, and how to use
flaps, rudders and ailerons to control your flight.
There are instructions on how to make a drinking straw dart as well.
I rate this book a 9, for young or first time paper airplane makers. The only
reason I don't rate it a 10, is because I believe a beginner's book needs more
than 5 designs.
Older, more experienced paper airplane pilots will more than likely have seen
these designs before.
Total Score: 9 out of 10!

No paper was included in the
book. The paper I am using I
bought at a craft store, and it
was intended to be used for
scrapebooking. But being 8
1/2" by 11" makes it perfect
for colorful paper airplanes
