What a cute, adorable book. My kids have always loved Legos since they were little. They have played hours and hours long with all kinds of legos and other bricks through the years and often many amazing buildings have sprouted from their creativity. And that’s how I got curious about “Brick” .. it’s and easy tie in, while Littles are playing with certain bricks, or a fun quick book for older kids, who can understand the connections to real historic buildings…. But here is what my daughter thought of the book :
When Brick was small her mother would tell her “great things, start with small bricks”, so when Brick is an adult she sets out to find her place. At first, she visits many castles all around the world. Soon her travel takes her to many places of worship, including Saint Basils Cathedral, Malwaid Minaret, and others. She also visits ordinary apartments, the suburbs, and then the Great Wall of China until she finds her place.
This book was lovely because it teaches kids about finding your place in the world while reading about amazing places and buildings the world has to offer. I also thought the illustrations were adorable and beautifully done. Another great part is the detailed description of the buildings in the back. I would recommend this read aloud to kids 5 and up.
