Our Favourite LEGO Books You Should Add to Your Reading List



We don’t just eat, sleep and breathe LEGO bricks – we spend our spare time reading about them, too. So, what’s interesting about reading LEGO books?

Books about LEGO can provide inspiration and new ideas for building and creating with bricks and teach them about different subjects through the lens of LEGO. They can introduce readers to other building techniques, designs, and concepts that can help take their building skills to the next level.

For those interested in learning more about the company’s history and evolution, reading can provide fans and collectors with a deep understanding of how LEGO came to be one of the most popular and enduring toy brands in the world.

Finally, reading books about LEGO can be a way to connect with other enthusiasts and be part of a larger community of people who share a love for this timeless toy and provide a common ground for conversation and discussion among fans.

So here are our favourite books about LEGO…
