As you might remember, I am a huge fan of Scholastic Books… and I am also part of a Scholastic Book review team, which I so enjoy being a part of!
Each month we get to select a book to review, and I was not shocked at all with my LEGO crazy sons selection:
About the book:
You have what it takes! Did you ever wonder what you can do with all of those LEGO® bricks after you have created the project they came with?
Now with The LEGO Ideas Book, you can take what you already have and make something new! The book is divided into six themed chapters—transportation, buildings, space, kingdoms, adventure, and useful makes—each with basic templates of key models and spreads to inspire you to create your own.
Hints and tips from Master Builders can help you turn your classic car into a race car or add a bridge to your castle! Don’t be concerned if you haven’t got all the bricks you need: this book also shows how to simplify details, making this a great user-friendly guide for any building ability.
Featuring all-new LEGO® building projects, tips to supplement and enhance your LEGO creations, inspirational builds, and expert advice from LEGO Master Builders, The LEGO Ideas Book will keep kids of all ages creating for hours.
Our thoughts? I will admit. The first time that I sucked a tiny lego piece into the vacuum, I was a tad annoyed. The second time … I was on a “LEGO kid” manhunt. The third time I finally got smart and started purchasing LEGO bins… because it was becoming pretty clear to me that these little plastic pieces and parts (that feel “oh-so-NOT-good when your bare foot steps on them) were going to be a part of our lives for many years to come. Who knew that building with LEGOS was so addicting? My son will choose LEGOS over television any day of the week, in fact, I don’t think that the t.v. was on once during the day during Christmas break … it was non-stop engineering going on around here.
So…needless to say, this book was a hit! PACKED with ideas and layouts and I love (love!) that it is hardback, because it’s going to get used, for sure.
As for Scholastic Books, in case you are unfamiliar with the Scholastic Book program, I am a huge fan of this as well. Scholastic Books do great things for classrooms and schools around the country. If you are looking for a way to volunteer or help at your child’s school, offer to be the “Scholastic mom” for the classroom, and you will probably get a huge HUG. I handled orders for my son’s classroom last year, and we earned so many fun and educational tools for his classroom, including free books for each child at the end of the year.
