 Create With Mom reviews 365 Things to Do With LEGO Bricks 

 "...encourages creativity, and helps children to enhance their physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and literacy skills.  We found that this book is helpful for our children to think outside the box, and to create unique structures using the variety of LEGO pieces they own. Both my children enjoy using this book to get ideas, then make their own models."
