LEGO Space - Building the Future

~ I received a copy of this book from the publisher or author to facilitate this review.  I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from No Starch Press): Come explore an incredible LEGO® universe in LEGO Space: Building the Future. Spaceships, orbital outposts, and new worlds come to life in this unique vision of the future, built completely from LEGO bricks.
A selection of step-by-step building instructions will have you constructing your own cosmic creations to play with at home. Marvel at interstellar battlecruisers, space pirates, charming robots, and other stunning builds from an amazing future!
My Review: As you may remember, we love LEGOs at my house and LEGO Space - Building the Future book is no exception.  It is a very cool book and my kids all agree. My kids loved the step-by-step instructions on how to construct all the space ships and robots.  I liked the story (reading) that went along with the book.  It is an extra bonus when I can add fun to reading!

Step-by-step instructions (including the type and number of pieces you need-look out LEGO store, here we come!)

Once again, No Starch Press out did themselves with beautiful illustrations.
