My kids have been reading Scholastic books since before they were in school and of course, I was reading Scholastic books since I was a child. Some of my sons favorite Scholastic books were the LEGO® ones, so the fact that LEGO has now released a series of nonfiction books is so exciting to me. Kids have such a natural thirst for knowledge and when you pair that with a love of products (LEGO) it’s a win/win for all.
I love that they have created these books for different age groups and reading levels. The inclusion of stickers and die-cuts helps to engage children in the learning process as they read and play!
