Billions of Bricks by Kurt Cyrus - OPTIONAL

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  

EL (K-3) – OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
