This title includes brief descriptions of making origami figures to use in conjunction with telling stories. The text lists the educational benefits of "storigami." While the black-and-white photos are poorly reproduced and the stories are not the most inspiring, the folding directions-the "meat" of the book-are well done. Participating in this activity promotes hand-eye coordination in youngsters, which is a key developmental skill for good readers. The selections are brief, and should hold the attention of listeners from preschool through middle elementary grades. "The Legend of Wyatt Burp," with its play on words and descriptions of a variety of smells, should please all fourth-grade boys. Students (and some adults) will need a little help to participate in the folding process. Optional follow-up activities and a list of sources that combine stories and origami make this a useful book.
