    Description"The most influential kitemaker you never heard of." -- "American Kite." This thorough guide by an expert kitemaker includes easy-to-follow, illustrated instructions for creating and flying more than fifty kites. An easy and comprehensive introduction for anyone interested in these amazing flyers, the book opens with the history and science of kites, followed by a section on kite construction and flying. Organized according to kite types, Greger's book includes chapters on everything from simple bag kites to Vietnamese, Snake, Dutch, Dragon, Bullet, Delta, and Flowform flyers. She even tells how to make windsocks and toy parachutes! The book is a great aid for classroom teachers, camp counselors, and parents, offering practical suggestions on everything from setting up a workspace and observing safety rules to launching the kites and bringing them in. ""Kites for Everyone" is like having a veteran kite maker in the classroom," says "Science and Children."
