My Thoughts

Do you have a child who enjoy Lego and desire to learn more about how to build cool things like animals?   Well this book is definitively something you need to check out because it will allow your child to build over 50 animals following clear instructions.

The table of contents of this book is composed of five chapters that will allow you to build a wide variety of animals that can be found in a zoo.  What are these animals?  They are the following: caterpillar, bee, canary, crocodile, fly, mouse, mountain goat, beaver, ladybug, dinosaur, chicken, owl, pig, fish, rhinoceros, frog, donkey, camel, dog, swan, elephant, gorilla, cat, crab, bear cub, parrot, spider, scorpion, bull, hippopotamus, praying mantis, kangaroo, horse, deer, rabbit, flamingo, koala, cow, sheep, monkey, fox, butterfly, giraffe, seahorse, lion, wolf, peacock, octopus, tiger and shark.



Each animal possess clear instructions on which bricks to use and how to build it.   Bright illustrations and information complete the instructions.    Sometimes the instructions fit in a two page spread while other times you will have to go through a few more pages to complete your new Lego creation.  Most Lego animals demonstrated in this book are adorable.  However, I must admit that I am a bit disappointed with the ladybug.  I was somewhat excited when I saw that a ladybug was included in this book because of the theme of my blog but when I saw the Lego ladybug created in this book I was speechless…. it looks more like a red and black caterpillar than a ladybug… Ladybugs are more round than long if you see what I mean.   Nevertheless, apart from this little “error” in design from my perspective, I find the book to be great for children who loves animals and enjoy building new things.

The Lego Zoo is available for purchase at your favorite bookstore, even on and
