I think it's important to understand what this book is and what it isn't. First off, you can see that the book is 32 pages. For those who have LEGO City sets, the average instruction manual probably has at least that many pages - so this isn't an instruction manual. This book doesn't have many words either - most of the pages have about one sentence at most.
What you will find in this book are many wonderful photos - in this case scenes out of a City made of LEGO bricks. Most of the creations are in minifig scale, but the author also includes some micro-scale creations as well to show you what is possible. The book includes a few simple instructions, in this case how to build a food cart, statue, some micro-scale buildings, a stop light, a soda machine, a food stand, and a couple of minfig scale buildings (one with a working elevator). The book also includes a bonus sticker sheet, which includes stickers for the soda machine, food cart, and street signs (among others).
The wonderful thing about Sean's books is that they appeal to a wide age range. My children (age 3 & 6) love these books for the photos which recreate scenes out of every day life in LEGO - and since the books are light on text they make great bedtime books for the kids. As your kids get older, they can use the instructions to build the models, or as inspiration to build their own creations.Read more ›
A good inspirational book for kids who learn visually and can use hints in how to apply bricks in new ways.
