Easy Origami Animals

Created by an origami master, these 23 models offer a menagerie of easy-to-fold animals. Figures include birds — a cardinal, parrot, bald eagle, and cranes — and a fox, pig, hippo, elephant, lion, and others. Diagrams illustrate every step of the folding process, and full-color pictures depict the completed models.Internationally renowned author John Montroll has significantly increased the origami repertoire with his original designs. Best known as the inspiration behind the single-square, no-cuts, no-glue approach, the American origami expert offers readers meticulously developed folding sequences that allow them to create better models with fewer steps.

I purchased this for my 7 year old daughter who LOVE origami AND animals so this was a win/win!!! This book has tons of cute animals and super easy instructions for younger children. Not to mention an amazing price! Love it!!

I love origami. There is something so relax and fun about making something out of just paper.I’ve made origami before, so I had an idea what I was doing when I started working through the animals in the book. I like that it has simple diagrams that are easy to read. The only animal I had trouble was the standing crane, and I could not get the legs to work. That one part needed some clarifications, but everything else I could understand.There was a wide range of animals from very easy to somewhat tricky. I like the variety included as there are animals from almost every type, and very few are created the same way.My favourite was the elephant, and not just because it’s one of the first 3D style animals. Elephants are my favourite animal ever, and I was super happy to produce a good looking origami version. It’s going on my elephant shelf for sure.Overall, if you like origami, I’d suggest checking out the book. It has simple creations that are suitable for beginners, with good instructions, but there is enough variety and creativity that even seasoned folders will find an animal or two to enjoy.

It seems to me that all origami books are written in a foreign tongue. Just as the others I've tried - there are terms and folds used in this book that are not explained, making them nearly impossible to perform correctly. I was disappointed - since the book is called Easy Origami

For Easy, this is a not-so-easy origami book. The directions are good as long as you know all the types of folds. If not, you have to keep flipping back to the explanation of the folds at the beginning of the book

What a wonderful starter book for Origami. These simple patterns are great for children, beginners and older adults. The animal patterns are fun and children especially like the finished folded animals on their desk and bedside. With so many printed papers available for scrapbooking, it's easy to make lifelike versions.

Exactly as promised. Easy, (not paper-cup easy!) Cute animals, each from one sheet, with no cuts or glue. Well-done and colorful book.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley.Easy Origami Animals by John Montroll is a compilation of twenty-three easy animal origami projects for beginners. Most of the origami animals that can be made from this book can be done in sixteen steps or less! There are pages in the beginning of the book showing you what the symbols used in the book mean, as well as a guide to the basic folding techniques used in origami. You should also know that origami paper is white on one side and colored on the opposite side and can be found at arts and crafts stores or online. Shadings in the book refer to the colored side of the origami paper.Some of the cool origami animals you can make using this book are a dog, parrot, hippopotamus, squirrel, rabbit and pig to name a few. All of the directions are shown in colorful diagrams and there are some scenes depicted with several of the origami animals which is a very nice touch for teachers who would like to make a scene with the animals once the students complete their origami projects.This book can aid teachers in the classroom at school, community centers providing before or after school care, day camps or for the parent looking for something to keep their child occupied on that rainy or snowy day.

Easy? Maybe for some. We found some of the designs to be challenging. Nice book, just not exactly "easy."
