Origami is a Japanese paper art that people of all ages enjoy. It is quite difficult to master, though, and this is how little Joey feels when he is introduced to the craft at school. His friend’s mother comes into class to show the students how to create a paper crane. Joey is so interested that he decides to take up the art as a hobby. Immediately, Joey realizes that this was not easy. He practices on every piece of paper in the house and even takes his enthusiasm into the community. Joey passes his talent and patience along to others, showing his friend how to make the origami craft too.
