Isogawa's books look really great. Both of my sons love playing with their grandmother's Dacta Technic collection. She's a grade school teacher and brings them home with her for summer vacation.

comment What are the essential resources for learning the fundamentals of LEGO building?
I'm very grateful for this. And I could not agree more. In the end, these resources are things I want to have absorbed myself so that I can help nudge him along whatever paths he opens up for himself through play and experimentation - it's to know what to put in front of him when play makes him hungry for that kind of learning. But that approach, too, can get in the way of the kind of learning you're talking about here, so I'm very glad for your response!

I've heard great things about the LEGO Ideas Book, but had never seen the No Starch Press offerings. Thanks much!

These are great. I followed the links at the bottom of Enjary's wonderful guide and ended up at some old Brickish Association newsletters. Good stuff there, too.
