Gr 6 Up—This informative guide to the LEGO EV3
Mindstorms kit provides clear directions for building and
programming five advanced robots. In order to find this book
useful, readers must already own the LEGO EV3 Mindstorms kit;
author Benedettelli provides a chart of pieces in the appendix
that readers should acquire if they own different versions of
Mindstorms kits. Tech-savvy students will find the projects
engrossing, but be forewarned that this text is not for novice
Mindstorms users or those new to robotics. Black-and-white
drawings may prove challenging for some to compare with real life
colored LEGOs. Readers are treated to a comic narrative
throughout the book that mimics the book's progress, which can
help break up the tedious nature of instructional text and
drawings, though they are more entertaining than informative.
Benedettelli painstakingly describes how to manipulate the kits
and their myriad parts and does not assume that the reader will
have access to a computer, helpfully describing how to program
without one. A good addition for schools serving students on
robotics or LEGO teams, but this guide may not find wide
readership in most public libraries.—Amy M. Laughlin, Darien
