Cool Cars and Trucks
About this creation
I'm very excited to announce that my first children's book is now available for sale! Alongside my other projects, I've been working on it for over 2 years.


"Cool Cars and Trucks" is a 32 page picture book for younger kids. Some of the models in the book you've seen here on MOCpages, but many them have never been seen before. :) All in all, there are over 50 cars & trucks, and instructions for a few of them. I tried to design most of the models using parts that you'll likely already have at home. (We can't all just buy whatever we want on Bricklink, now can we?) :)

Cool Cars and Trucks: The LEGO book by Sean Kenney


Here's a video of me (bah, with a really dumb still frame) talking about the book...



Read more.   Available now for $13

If you end up buying the book, please let me know what you think, and I'd love to see your cool cars & trucks here on MOCpages!

As per mentioned before, I finally got my hands on your book during a quick library visit. I'll go ahead and give you a little review here. I noticed that the text in the book is geared for younger builders, but a good majority of the builds were not. I could see smaller children enjoying looking at the photos while older children (9+) maybe trying to attempt some of the more advance builds without instructions. I really like the fact that you started with a simple basis design with instructions and then showed pics of different models made from using the same basis. This would allow children to not only read and build, but also get their creative processes going as they think about how to create designs out of the basis. I enjoyed how it was not an instruction manual, but sets the fundamentals of learning for younger kids. Overall the book is a win, great work. -Dylan

I think it is great being a certified Lego builder, and then going and doing something like this so that children can learn to expand their creative nature. We need this more and more as we progress into the future and people like you are helping "build" the path for our future generations. Thanks!

It sounds great! I would love to buy one but sadly I live in the Netherlands... Still, I think it is a great idea. To make a book to not just let kids build, but also inspire them and let them make their own models. great idea wich lego is forgeting more and more... So... Please make it available for the rest of the world! And I'd love to see more books of you, like cool buildings and houses ;) good luck!

Sean I'm very happy for your new book that came out and I just wanted to let you know that you really like to put things to the extreme, and your creativity in mind is amazing. I look up to you Sean, I really do. Being a Lego Certified Professional has been my dream job ever since I was 6, and I'm 14 now. Well I just wanted to congratulate you on all the work you've done so far, such as MOCpages, a place were every Lego creator can share there very own creations. Once again. Thank you Sean :). -Pedro

Congrats Sean! I may be out of the age group, but that wont stop me from finding new cars to build :) If you ask me $13 for 50 pages worth of cool car stuff is a great bargin. Funny, I just noticed I live on the other edge of Seans state...

...huh what? I tried listening to the video, but the endless rows of Lego bins kinda distraced me... Hopefully if I have the time (and the money) I'll pick up this book! I might not post the vehicles, though; they're not MOCs, they're YOCs :P

Looks like an interesting book, and only 13$. Maybe I will give it a go. Anyway, you are literally involved with the LEGO Company. I have asked for help to Keith Goldman and still waiting for a response. It has been my dream to work for the LEGO Group, and I wish you could help me out with that: tell me what I can do, and before you say it, I know I would have to move to Denmark since the group is based there.

Wow Mr. Sean. I thought that all you did was sculptures. But now I just got Punk'd, if you know what I mean. Maybe I might become a certified LEGO designer. But being a LEGO designer has been my dream since I was about 5. Good luck Mr. Sean.

Sean, that is brilliant, truly. I would like to have one for my kids for sure! Really nice effort! Still.. i am jealous that none of my trucks is featured... i mean with 7000 bricks you can have you're kid occupied 3 years. :-)
