We all have much to learn from Harriet Tubman. This inspiring story of courage, fortitude, and the promise of freedom for all will get you and your kids thinking about how to build a more inspiring world for you and your neighbors. Harriet's callings as an advocate for elders, suffragist, relief worker for refugees, freedom fighter, and slave liberator are sure to inspire you to make your own world better.


The EpBrick Poem's captivating storytelling puts you in the action of Harriet's incredible journey. Here is an excerpt from the opening pages:
Here comes Harriet, bold and strong.
Hear her stories told. Come along!


As a conductor, the Underground Railroad's guide,
nicknamed-"let my people go!"-Moses, she did stride.

For women's rights, she'd strive for more.
With black as her hue, her spirit could soar.

In Civil War battles, she played her part,
veteran of the U.S. Army, brave of heart.
A leader in the fight, first female commander,
wielding awesome might. Is anyone grander?

A mother. A farmer. Building a future.

Before that an agent, spy, with secrets to keep.
Before that a nurse, healer. Did she ever sleep?

Living with disability, she faced each day.
Wilderness, survivalist, in every way.

Through trials and strife, she would brave,
Harriet, the hero, born a slave.

 

This book features completely original illustrations created from building bricks and minifigures that are sure to get kids excited. You can even get your hands on the actual minifig of Harriet Tubman used in the illustrations!

Rosie the Riveter
has arrived!!!

The new Rosie kit includes Rosie’s Rig—a truck equipped with an articulated lift arm, off-road ruggedness, and heavy-duty towing capacity—as well as pieces to build the frame of a B24 Liberator, just like real Rosies from all walks of life and all across America during WWII. Builders can put together their kits while reading the endearingly illustrated storybook complete with authentic WWII photos and posters transformed to include brick minifigures. Classics like the “We Can Do It” poster and Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post cover now show off magnificent minifigures.

minifig special edition series

We are proud to bring you a new collection of world's-first minifigs representing some of the great figures of earth. We have simultaneously released two series of minifigs: History's Heroes and Incredible Kids. These series feature some of the greatest leaders/thinkers/artists/warriors/peace-makers/explorers of all time. Every one of History's Heroes is a female or person of color (or both). Every one of the Incredible Kids is someone who shared their gifts for greatness from an early age. 

Representation Goals

Every purchase you make of one of these Special Edition minifigs helps us to bring a new hero or incredible kid to life as a brick minifigure and brings us one step closer to achieving our representation goals:

•    Goal 1 – 67% of minifigs representing females (We’re getting there at 61%.)
•    Goal 2 – 51% of minifigs representing people of color (We’re close a
t 50%.)
•    Goal 3 – 33% of minifigs representing children/youth or elders (We’ve done it with 37%!)
•    Goal 4 – 25% of minifigs representing folks from the LGBTQIA+ community (We have work to do with just 11%.)
•    Goal 5 – 10% of minifigs representing folks living with a disability (We have work to do with just 5%.)

One of the big reasons that Brick Books got started in the first place was to bring far more representation to the building bricks genre. Unfortunately, the figures represented by classic building brick brands have been overwhelming white, male, straight, cisgendered, middle-aged, fictional characters. We are trying to change that by bringing you real figures like Alicia Alonso, Anne Frank, Annie Oakley, Emily Dickinson, Empress Jingū, Enheduanna, Gudrid Thorbjarnardóttir, Juana Azurduy, Karl Witte, King Arthur, King Tut, Laurel Clark, Louis Braille, Lozen, Maharani Tarabai, Nelson Mandela, Queen of Makeda, Samantha Smith, Shirley Temple, Wolfgang Mozart, Woman Chief, and the list goes on.
