What is Lego?

You may know that Legos are fun, stackable blocks that are one of the world’s most popular toys, but do you know how and when they were created and where the name LEGO originated?  This nonfiction treasure tells how they were the invention of a Danish carpenter who loved making wooden toys for children in the 1930’s.  Calling these blocks “LEGO” from the Danish phrase meaning “play well”, Ole Kirk Christiansen and his family turned a small family business into one of the largest and most innovative companies in the world.  With information about the design process, the Legoland theme parks, and the business venture that almost put the company out of business, this book is perfect for generations of Lego-lovers who want to know everything about their favorite pastime!
