The Best Architecture Books for Kids
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
My boys have always played with Legos, and our set of wooden blocks from my oldest’s son’s toddler years is still one of the most played with toys at our house. They build structures for Star Wars figures, historical monuments, and tracks for testing out tiny robots built with their electronics kits. My middle son is leaning towards architecture or engineering as a future career. He loves to figure out how things are put together and how design elements work.
We have several books on our bookshelves related to architecture that I’ve used throughout our homeschooling years. When teaching art, don’t neglect to include architecture!
