Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1–5—Crisp color photographs and diagrams show how to construct various vehicles with Lego blocks, including pocket-size cars and variations on an SUV. Some of the diagrams are confusing, but children with plenty of experience working with Legos should be able to follow the steps. Unfortunately, readers must scan the directions to identify needed pieces; there's no supply list at the beginning of each project. The text is limited. For example, a spread labeled "Taxis of all sizes" says, "If you don't have enough LEGO pieces to build a big car, try making the same car in a smaller size." The book is much narrower in focus than The Ultimate Lego Book (DK, 1999).—Lynn K. Vanca, Akron-Summit County Public Library, Richfield, OH
Booklist
Children who love cars, trucks, and LEGO blocks will find plenty to enjoy in this colorful book…. This visually engaging book will attract little ones interested mainly in looking at cars and trucks, as well as older kids, who may actually follow the directions and build some of the projects.
