(and how to use those educational LEGO Books)
Legos, Legos everywhere! Will I ever escape? I don’t think so — and I don’t even want to… The educational value of legos is just too great! What’s not to love? Okay, stepping on legos in the middle of the night is not to love. In fact, stepping on legos at any time of day is not to love. The sound of a breaking lego under your foot is not to love. Everything else about legos — my children and I LOVE.
As I have stated before, bringing legos into the homeschool or any learning environment is a natural, reasonable and even exciting choice. These educational LEGO books are sure to get your child’s creative lego learning juices flowing! Most of these are books we actually own and my kids love to use them for building – as a springboard for their own designs.
