Image: The LEGO Book, New Edition: with exclusive LEGO brick, by Daniel Lipkowitz (Author). Publisher: DK (October 2, 2018)
The LEGO® Book
LEGO® Blocks Patented (1958)
-- One of the most successful — and simplest — toy brands in history received a major boost on January 28, 1958: founder Ole Kirk Christiansen received a patent for a new design of his interlocking plastic bricks. When the blocks debuted on the market a few weeks later, it began a decades-long obsession with the toys for children all over the world.

Read: The LEGO® Book
-- Take a dazzling visual tour through all the groundbreaking moments in LEGO® history, from the company's humble beginnings in a carpenter's workshop to the invention of the iconic LEGO® brick and LEGO® minifigure, through to the stunning toys, video games and movies of today, including LEGO® Star Wars™, THE LEGO® NINJAGO® MOVIE™, and LEGO® Dimensions. Go behind the scenes to learn how LEGO® bricks are made; find out how amazing fan creations become real-life LEGO® sets and marvel at how LEGO® bricks made it to the computer screen and the big screen. Created in full collaboration with the LEGO® Group, The LEGO® Book is a treasure trove for LEGO® fans of all ages.

The LEGO® Ideas Book
The LEGO® Ideas Book: Unlock Your Imagination -- Divided into six themed chapters—transportation, buildings, space, kingdoms, adventure, and useful makes—each section contains basic templates of key models to inspire you to create your own. Hints and tips from Master Builders can help you turn your classic car into a race car or add a bridge to your castle. Don't be concerned if you haven't got all the bricks you need: this book also shows how to simplify details, making this a user-friendly guide for any building ability.

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up - and re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and Bella, the cat.
