      I remember many hours spent with my brothers around a large communal bin of building bricks, building anything that came to mind. I also remember wishing that there were instructions to follow for building cool designs, but new sets only came with directions for one model. Problem solved! These books each contain 40 designs to build. Flipping through the book, I found myself thinking how neat it was to see traditional pieces being used in inventive ways. Some building idea books hinge on having very specialized pieces from licensed sets, but as I flipped through these, I saw only one especially unique piece. Everything else was built from pieces I know I can easily find, even in slightly older bins of bricks. The step by step directions are computer-generated illustrations, just like the ones that come in brand new sets. Choose from 40 animal designs like a horse, lion, and fox; or build 40 things that go like a tow truck, concrete mixer, model T, or moon buggy. Breathe new life into that big box of bricks with these fun, colorful books. 96 pp, sc. – Laura

    This book inspired me to get my old LEGOS® down from the attic! If you've always dreamed of making LEGO® models of famous landmarks, this book is for you. It's filled with magnificent color photos of intricate LEGO® structures, representing famous places from around the world. Author Warren Elsmore tells about his start in building iconic LEGO® models and expounds on how they're built. He gives an overview of the most ten useful LEGO® bricks and discusses considerations in planning scale, details, colors and bricks to be used, and more. He tells how Computer-Aided Design (CAD) programs can be used to thoroughly plan models before they're built. Step-by-step instructions (with numbered diagrams) show how to make mini-models at home. Some of these mini-models include: a New York yellow cab, a London red phone box, and Rome's Trevi Fountain. And my, what inspiration is contained in these pages! It includes everything from little on-the-street scenes with instructions on how to recreate them yourself, to photos of massive replicas built by professional LEGO® modelers. Before long, you'll be mastering the art of LEGO® free-modeling, putting together these landmarks from all over the world: Paris, New York City, Seoul, Rome Shanghai, and many more. Or you could build Nelson's Column, the Sagrada Familia, or the Colosseum. Though directions aren't included for the largest models, don't be surprised if you come away from this book with all the knowledge you need to start creating your own mega-models! It also includes two pull-out posters showcasing St. Pancras Station and the World Trade Center. 256 pgs, semi-hardcover. –Chad

      Building with LEGO® bricks is a blast, but what happens when you’ve lost your directions or have builder’s block? No problem! This fun book is filled with lots of great ideas for things to build with LEGO pieces you probably have lying around. Choose from movie-inspired adventures like “Texas Alexander” the archeologist and Dinosaurs back from extinction, or more general themes like outer space, giant robot bugs, and camping trip. Not just a project book, each of the five themes kicks off with a most entertaining story of the main characters! While directions are not always 100% step-by-step, they are broken down enough that most kids should be able to follow easily. Each build has a parts list at the beginning so you can collect what you need instead of hunting and pecking as you build. 192 softcover pages. – Laura
