After stuffing ourselves with pizza and cupcakes, we each shared a little teaser booktalk about the book we had read. We had a wonderful and diverse selection of books represented, from nonfiction to fantasy to realistic fiction to sci-fi! Then, we moved over to the Lego table and attempted to re-create a scene, image, or plot point from the book using Legos. This turned out to be harder than it sounds, especially considering the limited Lego people and blocks available, but the Bookshoppers came up with some awesome literary creations. There are pictures below, but they will also be on display at the Main Library on the third floor until Monday morning, June 27, so stop by to check it out!
