Billion of Bricks
"Two, four, six. Look at all the bricks! Red and rough, hard and tough. Two, four, six."
"Bricks and blocks abound. Build beneath the ground! Arches, pillars, walls, and cellars, winding all around."
"Stack them to the sky, a hundred meters high. Twenty, forty, sixty, eighty, straight into the sky."
"The work is nearly done. The cleanup has begun. Let's count the bricks we didn't use . . . All together -"
Grab a hard hat and your tools and get ready for a construction adventure in counting.
Billions of Bricks was inspired by a driving trip through England. It's a Junior Library Guild selection, earned stars from Kirkus and Publishers Weekly, and was a Kirkus Best Book of 2016.
