MEDIA REVIEWS
"Likely to please both armchair enthusiasts and outdoorsy types..." -School Library Journal
"If you are a crafter that is interested in kite making ideas, you will love this little gem of a book. Wayne Hosking, the author, is a world-renowned kite authority and teacher. The book covers every aspect of kite making from the history of kites, supplies needed, terminology, tips, and tricks to safety rules. This publication will teach you everything you need to know to make and fly kites successfully! Although it is written for children, adults will appreciate the information!" - EasyPaperCrafts.com
"-the next time your children are bored, instead of just telling them to go fly a kite, tell them to build their own kite, first and they'll learn new skills and culture along the way, too!" -Castle View Academy
