Encouraging the kids to read and play with LEGO are both important to us. So this new book was always going to be well received!
As its name suggests, LEGO City Busy Word Book is a great title for parents who want their little ones to build their vocabulary as well as the famous bricks.
The new publication by DK features over 500 words relating to people, jobs, vehicles, buildings and much more. It teaches them via 30 colourful and detailed scenes that children will love looking through.
Within the different scenarios are hidden objects to find, recurring characters and, of course, LEGO’s trademark humour. There’s a narrative to it too, which I think is a great way of keeping kids engaged.
The four chapters follow a pizza thief through LEGO City and beyond, encountering a wide range of characters and locations. These include a construction site, a spaceport and a crooks’ hideout.
I love how representative it is too. There are plenty of female characters in roles that are ordinarily portrayed as male-only elsewhere.
Similarly, there’s a dad with a baby in a pushchair in one scene – I was particularly pleased to see that!
It’s aimed at early readers so is ideal for children in reception and years one to two at school. That said, it’s never too early to start nurturing a love of reading so I’m planning on using the pictures to teach my two-year-old daughter new words too.
LEGO CITY Busy Word Book has an RRP of £9.99 but I have five copies of it to give away. As always, you can use as many of the entry methods as you like via the Rafflecopter widget below. Good luck!
