Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Like Cool Cars and Trucks, Kenney's first book in the Cool series of LEGO construction ideas, the sixth volume includes plenty of vehicles, from race cars to spaceships . . . A worthwhile addition to the series.” —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.” —Booklist on Cool Cars & Trucks

“The photos will inspire young builders. . . . This is just the type of challenge that enthusiasts are likely to enjoy. . . . For LEGO enthusiasts, future engineers, and reluctant readers, this is a colorful and inspiring book.” —School Library Journal on Cool Robots

“It's fun (and potentially inspiring) to see what can be created with a little imagination, an inclination for building things, and an unlimited supply of interlocking plastic blocks and widgets.” —Booklist on Cool Robots

Children's Literature - Trudy Shiroma Koeffler
Sean Kenney has created an ingenious book using one of the favorite toys of all times: Legos. With merely 101 pieces Kenney demonstrates wonderful possibilities in the realm of Lego creations. He starts with a photograph of the 101 pieces he will use in his creations. 101 Lego pieces is the maximum number of pieces to build these models. Some models will not require all 101 pieces. The colors of the Legos are white, black, red, gray, navy blue and light blue. The book contains 12 scenes or items that the child can make. These include: cars, cities, ships, robot village, space, goofy faces, machines, household items, rockets, dinosaurs and other creatures. In each section diagrams are given to show how the pieces fit together to make each item and photographs are given of the finished product. Kenney has a website where a child may send photos of his/her own unique Lego creations to the author. Reviewer: Trudy Shiroma Koeffler; Ages 4 to 9.
