Learn How to Fold an Origami Yoda Finger Puppet

I bought Tom Angleberger's The Strange Case of Origami Yoda on March 1, 2010. I drove home, made a cup of coffee, and settled in for a night of reading. About halfway through the book, I e-mailed a friend something like: "I'm reading a book kids will love. I predict 20 holds by the end of tomorrow." Did my prediction come true? You better believe it!

A few weeks later, I shared the Origami Yoda trailer. It inspired dozens of kids to fold Origami Yoda finger puppets. Thank you, Tom Angleberger!
