Cyrus, Kurt Billions of Bricks PICTURE BOOK Henry, Holt and Company, 2016. $17.99 Content: G.
This book shows all the different ways that bricks can be used: buildings, streets and walls. It has a catchy rhyming rhythm throughout and refers to the large number of bricks that it takes to build things.
On the front cover it claims to be a counting book, but it’s not your typical counting book with a few references to numbers. The illustrations are cool with all of the geometrical patterns of the bricks, but the colors are bland in reds and ivory
