Lego Man In Space by Mara Shaughnessy, 2013
Did you know that a toy Lego Man was actually launched into space by two kids? It’s true and Lego Man In Space tells the astonishing story.
Younger children will love learning how a Lego Man entered space and older children, aided with additional resources and ideas in the back of the book, will be inspired to design their own creations. I love books that show real kids doing incredible things because it encourages other children that anything is possible and they too can accomplish something amazing. My five-year-old is in full fledge Lego mode at the moment and could not get enough of this incredible nonfiction book.
This is one of those wonderful books that combine children’s interests with inspiration.
