Mama Bibliosoph
My sons both love LEGOs. They weren't DUPLO lovers, but as soon as they discovered LEGO Junior kits, LEGO videos, and the LEGO movies, they were all in. Now, LEGO early readers are favorite solo reads. My son Harry picked out Planets: A LEGO Adventure in the Real World in the gift shop at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum and barely let go of it for days. It does an amazing job of combining these favorite building toys with real-world photography, lots of facts about planets, and LEGO ...more

Capitalizing on the popularity of LEGOs, Scholastic has paired the models and minifigures with real-world adventures to create a new reading program with mixed success. In Planets, slightly older readers join the LEGO minifigures on a journey through the solar system and beyond, where they encounter incredible stars and planets, find out the latest space facts, and find LEGO building ideas. The main problem I have with the books in this series are the layout - they are extremely busy and ...more

This was a great addition to my literature set for a comprehension unit teaching first-graders to make connection to themselves, their world, and other texts. This non-fiction book is bright and exciting as it intrigues young students with its involvement of legos as they learn about the Solar System.

From Kyndel: This books gives lots of facts about stars, planets, and things launched into space. If you want this book for a space lesson, you’ll have to check this book out. It’s cool and gives lots of space facts!

Lots of quality informaiton about space here, plus some silly LEGO related humor. This book was published in 2016 and has up to date info about ISS as well as various satelites, probes, and telescopes. I have been impressed with both LEGO nonfiction books we have read so far.

Nice images, brief facts, and entertaining lego interjections. Great for kids who like legos and space like my six-year-old.

Originally reviewed for YA Books Central: http://www.yabookscentral.com/kidsnon...

In this informative introductory guide, LEGO borrows heavily from NASA images and taps a comic-style to walk kids through our solar system—and beyond.

Planet stats include: Material composition, Distance from the sun, number of probe missions, and notation on any existing moons or rings. Most planets receive at least a two-page spread, although Uranus and Neptune share presentation space. Sections are also devoted

Planets is one of the first books in a Lego-themed nonfiction series published by Scholastic. The series is being marketed as "a Lego adventure in the real world."

What I liked about this one:

I enjoyed the nonfiction narrative text. The main narrative text keeps things moving. Just a few sentences per page. Each two-page spread features more text: side bars, charts, captions for photographs, etc.

I enjoyed the layout. Big, bright, bold, colorful photographs.

I enjoyed two out of the three Lego
