Legos, and all the variations, are more popular than ever, and that makes this book indispensable for home, school or library programs. The 35 pieces are identified in the first pages, and from there photographs guide you in assembling all sorts of items, from spacecraft to household objects.
This is one in a series of Lego books on a variety of topics. I liked that there were so many things that could be made out of a small number of pieces-- my son's Legos seemed so different from the ones I had. I had a box of basic pieces, but all of his seemed to come in very specific, geek-oriented kits. The only problem with this would be finding the 35 specific pieces, but once those were put together, I think this would be a great guide to have.
Used this book today with the LEGO building group at the library. I challenged my builders to create using only 35 pieces and it worked pretty well, I must say! It's great to challenge their thinking from time to time. (Oh and the mini-figs counted as one piece, by the way!)
