Building Strong Readers with LEGO® Books

One of the ways that I support the needs of readers is to find out what their interests are.  As you can imagine, a lot of children (boys and girls) are interested in LEGO® products.  What you may not have realized is that there are several LEGO themed books available for checkout at your library.  I hope that you enjoy this selection.
