My son has been interested in LEGO® for the past few years but it has become an obsession the past few months! All summer, he just wanted to build, build, build! LEGO has taken over his desk and any other open spaces in his room and we have plans to decorate his room in a LEGO theme. While I love that he’s being creative and using his imagination to build, I also wanted him to keep reading this summer. The perfect solution? LEGO nonfiction books! I’m so excited to partner with Scholastic to share with you these fun new books!
What is LEGO® nonfiction?
Two powerhouse brands, LEGO and Scholastic, come together to reinvent children’s nonfiction publishing. In this innovative new publishing program, LEGO models and minifigures are illustrated in fun and fantastic scenarios throughout as the first point of engagement for kids with real-world topics. This program represents a marriage of core values between LEGO and Scholastic: imagination, creativity, fun, and learning, as well as providing the most engaging, educational information for children.
- An imaginative, fun, and informative nonfiction reading experience from Scholastic and The LEGO® Group—two of the most trusted brands in the world
- Visually stimulating packaging, interiors, and added-value including die-cuts, foil, and stickers
- A combination of LEGO illustrations with real world photographs yield HILARIOUS and INFORMATIVE books kids won’t put down.
- Humor and creativity that kids LOVE and EXPECT from the LEGO brand
- “Building starters” throughout each book encourage the connection between the reading experience and real-world LEGO building
- Amazing facts that kids WANT to know from Scholastic
These books are so much fun and my son has fallen in love with them – he’s always wanting me to sit down with him and read them. He loves that there are familiar characters in the books from sets he has or movies he has seen. The LEGO books are teaching him in a fun way and he’s had so many questions for me as he reads!
