Classroom teachers and school librarians - this is a delightful book about the power of practice and persistence. This is a great example of growth mindset.
Joey is a little boy who is fascinated by things that fold - maps, accordions, even his bed. At school, Joey discovers the art of origami and sets his mind to become an origami master. With the help of a friendly neighbor and restaurant owner, Joey succeeds.
