Review: Cool Creations in 35 Pieces by Sean Kenney


LEGO bricks are one of the most all-time beloved holiday toys. This year LEGO fans will be able to amaze friends and family with what they build with a little help from COOL CREATIONS IN 35 PIECES ($12.99, Ages 4-8) by best-selling author and artist Sean Kenney.

COOL CREATIONS is a perfect first LEGO book for young artists-in-the-making, and reviewers have recommended it as an ideal gift for a 5 year old.

Sean taps deep into his imagination with an exercise that will challenge readers of all ages. He illustrates how to build dozens of ‘cool’ figures—from menacing robots with names like Blurg and Scraps, to transforming trucks, to creatures that live in the rainforest—out of LEGO bricks, but uses no more than 35 pieces in each construct.

Sean has been building with LEGO bricks since he was a boy and left a lucrative career to become the first LEGO-certified professional. He currently has three touring exhibits and has built sculptures weighing up to 400 pounds that required tens of thousands of Lego bricks. But he gets just as much joy from creating the intricate-yet-simple designs in COOL CREATIONS IN 35 PIECES, and readers will too.

My children and I loved this book.  What a fun and easy way to create fun Lego creations with the kids.  There for so many cute, interesting and cool ideas that both the kids and I can create. I highly recommend it for the Lego lovers in your house!
