Kites for Everyone has so many kite plans and so much information, it is clearly the work of someone with a lot of experience, and my family has enjoyed making kites from it. That said, it's definitely a how-to that requires a lot of adult interpretation and supervision. You need to read the whole introductory section to get a real lock on how kites work and what you might need to keep in mind for the style of kite you are constructing. You can't just jump to the page you are interested in. At this point thanks to word processing I think we are used to instructions being more user-friendly, and these were confusing at times, hence the 4 star review! I had read the reviews and knew that was probably the case, so I was glad I was ready for it!

This person's love for teaching and her philosophy of teaching is perhaps by itself a good reason to buy this book. However I found some of the direction confusing or unclear. I'd leap at an opportunity to take an in-person class with her though.

I was expecting more patterns, but over all the book was in good condition and contained much of the information I looked for.

I was able to make a cheap kite that flew beautifully. This book is well written with a lot of detail. Great book for the beginner kite maker and even includes some flying tips.

Is a copy of a book my relatives have. They made a lot of the cousins kites from information written in the book. Its nice having some ideas and instructions on kite making instead of just buying kites. A great book for those wanting to, or willing to make the kites.
