Now who doesn't get a little nostalgic thinking about making a paper plane? It's a childhood classic! And those of us with our own kids now must know there will be many a paper plane in our future if not already! Well, get this, a group of artists from the group Little Paper Planes (yeah, we're assuming the concept of the book derived from their name, too) have collaborated on a beautifully illustrated activity book filled with constructible paper doll airplanes, plane mobiles, mix-and-match gliders, and more. Yep, they are taking our notebook paper planes up juuuust a few notches!
Chronicle Books continues to inspire us with the products they put out and this is no exception!!
