So you can join the fun, here is a baker's dozen of simple, good-looking kites for you to make and fly. Featured are a potpourri of classic kite, space cruisers, and sky monsters, all clearly described and illustrated in easy-to-follow, step-by-step directions with a variety of decorating ideas. And to get your handiwork off the ground and back again safely, Burton and Rita Marks tell you how to guide your kite through take-off and landing, how to select a kite to fit specific wind conditions, and what to do in case of emergency.

From simple tails to kite shops, Kites for Kids includes everything young beginners or rusty champions need to know to make their kite-building and flying a soaring success.
