Did your boy love The LEGO Movie? Take some of that movie love and expand it into reading love.
I really enjoy finding things my son is interested in and offering him opportunities to expand on that enjoyment. At Brain Power Boy we are big into offering the best books for boys and since LEGO is one of our favorite topics as well I thought combining the two was just too good to pass up. It’s a match made in heaven. Take a look at this list and see if you can find a book or three or five for your son to read or an activity book for him to play around with. Please make sure you go all the way to the end of the page where I am linking to a really nice (and fun) free The LEGO Movie activity book for you and your boy to use. Enjoy!

Best Books for Boys: The LEGO Movie:
The LEGO Movie Readers & Jr Novels:
DK Readers L1: The LEGO Movie: Calling All Master Builders!: Level 1 reader (beginning readers.) Information about the master builders in the movie. Less of a story and more of a character guide.
DK Readers L2: The LEGO Movie: Awesome Adventures: Level 2 reader (beginning to read alone.) Emmett’s Adventure through The LEGO Movie with the basic plot line of the movie.
LEGO The LEGO Movie: Emmet’s Awesome Day: Beginning reader from Scholastic. Narrated by Emmet who tells of his adventure from The LEGO Movie. p.s. has one terrible review on Amazon but, really? it is just a kids book, not literature.
LEGO: The LEGO Movie: The Official Movie Handbook: Written in comic book/graphic novel style this book tells a bit about each character and the lands such as The Wild West and Cloud Cuckoo Land.
The LEGO Movie: Junior Novel: 144 pages long, 8 color picture pages. A junior novel of the movie storyline.
The LEGO Movie Guidebook:
The LEGO Movie: The Essential Guide (Dk Essential Guides): I love these DK Essential Guides for so many reasons. My son spends hours reading them and looking at all the pictures. This particular one is a bit shorter compared to some of the others, around 65 pages, so I wanted to point that out. Still super though.
The LEGO Movie Activity Books:
I am including a few activity books here as well. Reading doesn’t always have to happen in a a fiction or non-fiction official book form. Puzzles and activity books are great ways for boys to practice their reading. Word finds, crosswords, and other games help improve word knowledge, vocabulary, and familiarity with language. All good!
The LEGO Movie: The Piece of Resistance: Puzzles, stories and a buildable minifig.
Ultimate Sticker Collection: The LEGO Movie (ULTIMATE STICKER COLLECTIONS): Over 1000 stickers, some of them quite tiny, to use and re-use within the book. Or, why not use this great collection to have your boys make their own stories–creativity, reading and writing! There is another sticker book on Amazon but get this one, it has a ton more stickers and is much better quality. Plus it was only about $1.00 more for 850 more stickers at the time I wrote this.
Free LEGO Activity Book from Warner Brothers and the LEGO Group. This is a high quality little pdf with printable pages. Includes coded message, word search, crossword puzzle, a word scramble and a few other things to do.
I hope you find a few things here that your boy will enjoy. We think they are Awesome! (yes, I had to go there because, well, it is just fun 🙂 )
To see a few of the LEGO builds that were in the movie see our interview with Bruce Lowell. He had a donut, a skull, a hot dog and a taco in The LEGO Movie.
