Billions of Bricks

Author(s): Kurt Cyrus

Picture Books

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. This is a terrific introduction to counting in quantities for children.

Product Information

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