Book Review

Publisher's Note:

The first-ever LEGO(R) picture book, from Barnacle Is Bored creator Jonathan Fenske! What happens when an ordinary LEGO minifigure of the past meets the extraordinary minifigures of today, with their elaborate vehicles, colorful clothes, and wild accessories? He thinks he's no fun at all! "Let's face it. If we were all ice cream, those guys would be the super-duper chunky happy birthday blast. And I would be the vanilla." After feeling down about being ordinary, he and his new friends piece together just how special he truly is. This vibrantly illustrated storybook will charm readers of all ages, reminding them that what makes each person special can be found on the inside.…

Overall Book Review:

This entertaining book is rated for 4 to 8-year-olds, but who can resist cute little LEGO people? With a charming story line and bright, colorful illustrations, this story book is sure to entrance young readers and listeners.  With a simple layout, it is a great read aloud for younger kids and good starter book for new readers.  The sentences are simple yet packed with a great lesson.  Lego man is feeling a bit of self-doubt.  He thinks he’s not as “cool” as all the new Lego people with their colorful props and vehicles.  He’s dealing with emotions like jealousy and depression, but after meeting a few other characters, he realizes that everybody has something to offer and accepting himself is the start to a fun=filled future.  In true kid style, the cover is even textured like a LEGO block and the figures are slightly raised.

About the Reviewer

Reading a good adventure story has always been a vacation in the theater of my mind. When I’m stressed or just need to get away for a few minutes, I love the opportunity to climb into somebody else’s world. I didn’t enjoy reading until I was in the Air Force and building bombs in Korea; it was a wonderful distraction from the real world. (I tried bull riding, but it wasn’t exciting enough.)
