SUMMARY- Florence Sakada and Isao Honda were two people who wanted to share their cultural heritage with the West and saved many traditional folds from obscurity by reintroducing them in children's craft books. Florence Sakada also wrote many children's story books of Japanese tales, and a primer on learning the Japanese language. This book is of very simple folds, with the crane being by far the most complex.
