“This book is perfect for the beginning reader. That child is old enough to have the fine motor skills to put Legos together and will flourish with the independent play and all of the things they'll learn along the way. I think that beginning reader age is the ideal age for these books.” - @mamasorganizedchaos

We can’t wait to share all our hard work with you all! 🙌
Sofie + Nate was created by an “aha moment” from Natalie’s mother after she took notice of her daughter successfully playing with Legos from 2D step-by-step directions. Ann teamed up with her close friends – Elaine & Paul Bacio – to create and design brick building activity books that would allow their young daughters to do something on their own while also building skills for life like problem-solving; fine motor skills; distinguishing colors, shapes, and numbers. Learn more about our story and how our books can help your little ones develop their skills by visiting sofieandnate.com! 💖

“This book has clear and concise instructions for the kiddos to construct some neat zoo animals. The pages are colorful and the graphics are simple enough for my child to follow along with me. It's not only fun for them to build but they are also recognizing shapes, colors, and numbers as they go. We've always had trouble coming up with new ideas of what to build, and usually, end up making a building or vehicle. This book has opened our eyes up to a whole new world of possibilities!” - Weston (Amazon)

“These simple, easy-to-follow books were perfect for (my youngest) to learn how to build. Once he has these down, I'm sure he'll go on to build creations of his own design in a few years. The nice thing about these books is that they are simpler than typical Lego sets but still teach spatial skills, colors, and shapes.” - @thoughtfulparent

You’re never too young to have a voice or idea to share with the world. In celebration of #InternationalWomensDay here’s child author, Sofia Chen, being an inspiration to her peers and encouraging her classmates to follow their passions! 💕
"Look mom! Stuff I can build by myself!" “If you've ever gotten building brick kits, you know that some of those are very hard to build. Some kids with special needs and fine motor skill issues struggle to build such intricate designs. Which is another reason I love these activity books so much.” - @alegionforliam
Stand tall. It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are! 🦒 Sharing some more zoo animal inspiration from the one and only @legolandcalifornia. What new Brick Building animals do you want to see for future book releases?
“One thing that all my children from the oldest to the youngest love to do is build with blocks. We as a family will sit down in the evenings and just build stuff together or have races to see who can build the biggest tower, neatest car. The possibilities are endless to what the kids come up with as to what we will be making.” - @andersonsangels
Meet the Author Monday’s! Say hello to Paul Bacio Jr or who we like to call “Master Builder”! His 13+ years of experience in developing and teaching brick building summer camp curriculum is what makes him a key player in the success of Sofie + Nate. His creativity tied together with challenging designs has helped inspire thousands of children to learn key STEM concepts and problem-solving skills through creative play. 🙌
“Having 3 children on the autism spectrum, our house is full of Lego bricks! I was absolutely amazed at how easy the instructions were to make fruits, vegetables, and a wide array of animals. Even our high schooler loved created the more advanced animals in the Zoo Animal Brick Build Activity book!” - @themomkind.
