Andrew Dewar was born in Toronto, Ontario, and graduated from Ryerson Polytechnic Institute (B.A. Journalism) and University of Toronto (M.A. Japanese Studies, Library and Information Science) before moving to Japan in 1988. After completing his doctoral studies in library science at Keio University, he joined the faculty of a junior college in Japan. Soon after arriving in Japan he rediscovered his childhood love of designing and flying paper airplanes. His passion for paper airplanes led him to become president of the Fukushima Paper Airplane Club. Dewar has published over 30 paper crafting books and kits. He also teaches paper airplane workshops and does seminars at schools, libraries, community centers and museums. He lived and taught library science in Fukushima, Japan, until the giant earthquake and nuclear accident in March 2011, when the city became unsafe. After a brief stay in Canada, he's returned with his family to Gifu, Japan.
Befold! — Combine the age–old art of easy origami paper folding with the greatest stories from the Bible!

Perfect for children and young adults, this boxed paper craft kit contains everything beginner to advance paper folders will need to create colorful paper figurines from famous Biblical stories and assemble them on origami background tableaus to help retell the stories.

Each Biblical tale is introduced, followed by an explanation of the significance of all the folded paper figures in the story. The finished origami pieces can then be used to reenact these timeless stories, or to create inspiring dioramas. These reenactments using origami paper figures and background help bring the sacred Bible stories alive for your family, youth group or Sunday school class.

This do-it-yourself paper craft kit contains:
  • A full–color 64-page booklet
  • Step-by-step folding instructions
  • Easy-to-follow diagrams
  • 72 sheets of 2–sided folding paper in a variety of sizes and colors
  • 72 models and 6 different backdrops to make 9 scenes.
The Bible is not just a book. It is also a fountain, from which springs forth great sprays of art music and literature. There has always been a tradition of presenting the Bible visually—just think of how sculptures, illuminated manuscripts, and stain glass can often capture the message of the Bible better than printed words. Origami is a natural medium to express religious teachings because it is both interactive and beautiful. This fun origami for kids kit will make scripture come to life again and again!

Origami projects include:
  • The First Christmas
  • Easter
  • Adam & Eve
  • Noah's Ark
  • The Tower of Babel
  • Jacob's Ladder
  • Jonah and the Whale
  • The Good Shepherd
  • The Annunciation
