Guest Author: Mara Shaughnessy on Lego Man in Space

Lego Man in Space was one of the top books of 2013 that we selected for our Holiday Reading Guide.  The creator, Mara Shaughnessy, has very kindly written a guest post for us about her book.  Check it out and grab a copy of Lego Man in Space from your library.

So far, more than 3 million people around the world have tuned into YouTube to watch the real-life voyage of LEGO® Man in space: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQwLmGR6bPA

But you can also read about this incredible feat by asking your librarian for a copy of LEGO® Man in Space: A True Story.  Inside, you’ll see how two teenagers, Mat and Asad built a spaceship, sent it into near space and brought it back to earth safely. The book is packed with facts and information and you’ll also find cool ideas for your own science and engineering projects, as well as LEGO®-themed games and crafts.

If you STILL can’t get enough LEGO® Man in Space, you can check out the colouring sheets, worksheets and activities at www.littlemonster.ca/legoman.
