Book review: Cool Creations in 35 pieces

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book to review for myself. I was  not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.

Like most households that contain a small child or two, we have lots of Lego blocks around our home.  Ethan doesn't play with them terribly often though, since many of the sets are too complicated for him to do alone, and he gets tired of just building towers or lining blocks up.  Fortunately for us, we have a FABULOUS new book in our home- Cool Creations in 35 Pieces. Here's a bit about this book, from a press release that I received:

Building with LEGO® pieces can inspire children and adults alike to construct wonderfully imaginative and grand creations – towering castles, massive aircrafts, and intricate cities. But LEGO models don’t have to be complicated to be fun and exciting. In Cool Creations in 35 Pieces, best-selling author and artist Sean Kenney taps deep into his imagination with an exercise that will challenge readers of all ages. He creates dozens of figures—from menacing robots with names like Blurg and Scraps, to transforming trucks, to creatures that live in the rainforest—out of LEGOs, but uses no more than 35 pieces in each construct.
This book has great pictures of simple Lego block creations, as well as easy-to-follow instructions.  Perfect for getting your little one busy creating and building!  This great book is available now, and I think it would make a wonderful holiday gift for the building block fan in your life!
