Description


Two, four, six. Look at all the bricks!

Grab a hard hat and all your tools, and get ready for a construction adventure in counting! This clever, rhyming picture book leads readers through a day in the life of a construction crew building with bricks. A brick may seem like just a simple block, but in groupings of ten, twenty, and more, it can create many impressive structures, from hotels to schools to skyscrapers. Billions of Bricks from Kurt Cyrus is a terrific introduction to counting in quantities for children.

"An amazing feat of architecture and artistry that kids will pore over long after the last brick has been laid."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Rollicking rhymes and elegant artwork should delight playroom block stackers and someday builders and architects alike."-Publishers Weekly, starred review

"As workers make bricks, mix mortar, and build increasingly complex structures, Cyrus’s pulsing rhythm and infectious rhyme drive their efforts forward . . . The impeccable design is apparent even on the title pages . . . This impressive melding of illustrations and text that celebrates hard work and building deserves a place in general collections and on read-aloud shelves."-School Library Journal

"Readers will have fun shouting out repetitive lines and locating specific workers from page to page. The bouncy rhythm and energetic action make this a fantastic pick for a group story time."-Booklist
