*This post is brought to you in partnership with Scholastic. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review. Opinions are my own.

As parents, we want to raise readers. I love watching my children get caught up in a good book.When most children go to select a book, they reach for a fiction book. We all love stories, but I want my kids to be well-rounded readers who also have a love of non-fiction.

LEGO® Nonfiction to the rescue!


Two powerhouse brands, LEGO and Scholastic, come together to reinvent children’s nonfiction publishing. In this innovative new publishing program, LEGO models and minifigures are illustrated in fun and fantastic scenarios throughout as the first point of engagement for kids with real-world topics. This program represents a marriage of core values between LEGO and Scholastic: imagination, creativity, fun, and learning, as well as providing the most engaging, educational information for children.

  • An imaginative, fun, and informative nonfiction reading experience from Scholastic and The LEGO Group—two of the most trusted brands in the world
  • Visually stimulating packaging, interiors, and added-value including die-cuts, foil, and stickers
  • A combination of LEGO illustrations with real world photographs yield HILARIOUS and INFORMATIVE books kids won’t put down.
  • Humor and creativity that kids LOVE and EXPECT from the LEGO brand
  • “Building starters” throughout each book encourage the connection between the reading experience and real-world LEGO building
  • Amazing facts that kids WANT to know from Scholastic


LEGO Nonfiction books will be released for a variety of reading levels, ranging from ages 4 – 12. The first four books are in stores now! My kids couldn’t get enough of these books! They very quickly made the rounds at bedtime- and all 4 kids LOVED these books!! I am confident the child in your life will love them too.
