By “paper artist” Dinah Zike, and chock-full of projects to easily make useful educational manipulatives, gifts, art materials, and books. Most projects in this book require only scissors, paper, glue and markers to construct; yet these commonplace materials can be transformed into uncommonly useful manipulatives. Examples include “layered look” books that ingeniously teach monetary and time equivalents. If you’re on a budget, the ideas in this book could save you a bundle over “store bought” counterparts!
