This book makes me think….With Little Blocks comes Great Creativity….
Ok, yeah I’m pretty random sometimes when I’m reviewing products, yes we received this book as a sample and it came on a day that Miles didn’t have school and his sister did. He kept asking me if he could play a video game but he’s not allowed to change the discs because he doesn’t take care of the discs. So I had to change the disk and I was in the middle of editing a video for my blog. This book was delivered and suddenly he didn’t care about the video game, he cared about finding the LEGOS to make a ROBOT.
There are always LEGOS in the floor of my living room, on the fire place and in the kitchen. The kids LOVE LEGOS and when I say kids that include the big kid my husband. Ah, I love them too but they paly with them the most. What I love about this book is how easy it is to use and how it inspires great things. Building with LEGO® pieces can inspire children and adults alike to construct wonderfully imaginative and grand creations – towering castles, massive aircrafts, and intricate cities. But LEGO models don’t have to be complicated to be fun and exciting. In Cool Creations in 35 Pieces, best-selling author and artist Sean Kenney taps deep into his imagination with an exercise that will challenge readers of all ages. He creates dozens of figures—from menacing robots with names like Blurg and Scraps, to transforming trucks, to creatures that live in the rainforest—out of LEGOs, but uses no more than 35 pieces in each construct.
Cool Creations in 35 Pieces is Sean’s sixth book that showcases his LEGO art work. His intricate-yet-simple designs will inspire millions of LEGO fans to unleash their own imaginations. He provides starting points, and also includes a step-by-step instruction guide on how he created his pieces.
Falling in love with LEGOs as a boy, Sean left a lucrative Lehman Brothers career to pursue his dream as an artist. He now owns nearly 2 million LEGO bricks and has erected works that weigh as much as 400 pounds. For Cool Creations in 35 Pieces, however, he wanted to show what’s possible with only a few blocks. Just imagine the worlds you can create in only 35 pieces!
