365 Things To Do With LEGO Bricks

365 Things To Do With LEGO Bricks
Books make wonderful gifts for our loved ones and friends anytime of the year, especially for the holidays. The Holiday Gift Book Selection at DK Canada has a wide selection to suite everyone's taste. My children are LEGO fans and the LEGO book, 365 Things to do with LEGO Bricks, unleashes their imagination and gives them lots of creative ideas on how to use a variety of LEGO bricks to create unique pieces. 
365 Things To Do With LEGO Bricks
We think every LEGO fans must own this book! This book is full of ideas on how different types of LEGO pieces can be used to create very unique models such as creatures, organizers and storage containers, building a variety of games, and many more. This book written by Simon Hugo has fabulous pictures of the models designed by many. The beginning of the book categorizes the projects into different groups, so builders can go directly to the type of projects that interest them such as Festive Fun that gives ideas on how to make a 3D greeting card using LEGO or Building a hatching egg. In the content section, the projects are numbered 1 to 365 and also has the page number for our convenience. We found this useful when deciding which activity to pick.

The book also has a digital activity selector that builders can press and a random number will appear on it, allowing the builder to randomly select an activity to try. Builders can use this device embedded in the book to race building against the clock or use the stopwatch to time their activity. The book explains the different LEGO pieces and teaches children what the different pieces of LEGO are called, how the pieces can be held together to keep the model steady, and how to build mini or big pieces, and how to incorporate LEGO Technic pieces to add strength, movement, and details, and using them in different angles.

The book does not explain how to build, rather it has bright colourful photographs of the models with tips and techniques, and explains the different pieces used, which allows the builder to get creative and really use their imagination and helps test their skills.

We found that this book is helpful for our children to think outside the box, and to create unique structures using the variety of LEGO pieces they own. Both my children enjoy using this book to get ideas, then make their own models. We really enjoy this book, 365 Things to do with LEGO Bricks, as it encourages creativity, and helps children to enhance their physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and literacy skills.   

This review has been highlighted on DK Canada.
It Can't Be True! 2 is a book full of interesting facts that children and adults will find fascinating. Did you know that the Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean on earth that covers one third of our planet's surface and can fit all the continents inside its basin? The zone around the edge of the Pacific is known as the Ring of Fire, as it contains more than three-quarters of the world's volcanoes. This is also the place where nine out of ten earthquakes happen. 

There are many other facts about... how much sea salt is in the sea, about mountain rages, trees, rain fall, weight of clouds, how long animals can hold their breath in water, films that cost the most money to make, fastest ball in sports, and many more! This book is awesome!
