The LEGO Movie Books

My life will never be the same since watching The LEGO movie. My 6 year old: OBSESSED. From quoting the movie to talking about how #EverythingIsAwesome!!!

I love how LEGO has taken something as simple as building blocks and taken them to a new level of interactive. As a parent, I also appreciate the positive message the movie bestows to it's viewers.  Ok.  Let me totally come clean here.  YES.  I am personally obsessed with the movie too.  And YES.  When I did the segment on Fox 29 I did have LEGO pieces made out of KRAGLE.  Whatcha gonna do now?  Heh.  

One of the things that Boston loves is connecting to his older cousin Tyler and talking LEGO's.  Tyler and Boston are the only boys - so Boston really looks up to him!  (So yes - we do have Hudson - but he's still in baby mode lol)  Tyler sends Boston little packages of LEGO awesome often & one of the things he loves the most is the LEGO sticker books!  They are fabulous!  I'm always so amazed at how he knows who all the characters are. 

With the new LEGO Movie - comes new LEGO books!  

So, when I was asked to review the LEGO books, I was THRILLED about the opportunity! 

“The LEGO® Movie: The Essential Guide,” ($12.99)

For fans of the movie, this essential guide is a must-have! Recommended for kids 6 and older, this book is jam-packed with illustrations from the movie. The book also explores the characters in-depth and provides behind-the-scenes information for even the littlest fans. Boston loved learning all the fun details of The LEGO movie!

“The LEGO® Movie: The Ultimate Sticker Collection,” ($12.99)

All I have to say is, "WHAT KID DOESN'T LOVE STICKERS?" Answer: NONE. This book is like a more compact version of the Essential Movie Guide (with information on characters, location spreads and vehicles), but also offers more than 1,000 reusable stickers!  So kids can create their own LEGO adventures on the colorful pages throuhgout the book.  A good way to use imaginations!

“The LEGO® Movie: Calling All Builders,” ($3.99)

As the mom of a soon-to-be First Grader (be still, my heart!), I am loving that DK publishers have released books that work on fundamental reading skills. These books are part of a multi-level reading program, which is perfect for my budding reader. Calling All Builders is great for fans of the movie, as it's a simple Level 1 reading book that follows the movie's storyline. I like that Boston can work on reading most of it, but there is still room for me to participate with him.

“The LEGO® Movie: Awesome Adventures,” ($3.99)

 This book is the Level 2 counterpart to Calling All Builders. It also follows the movie storyline, but involves longer sentences and more challenging vocabulary. I like that BOston can work on the Level 1 LEGO book and once he has mastered it, has a new book to challenge him. And, my boys love LEGOS. So they are already instantly engaged and and Boston is eager and willing to read (YAY!)
