My Thoughts:

Do you have a lego fan in your life? Lego sets can be expensive and it’s also hard to remember which sets a lego fan has. Why not spark their imagination with this great animation book.

We’ve all seen youtube videos of lego movies. Now you can learn how to make your own. The book is full of step by step directions. The pictures are bright and colorful and easy to follow. My nephew loves this book and is already brainstorming ideas for his first movie!
