Joshua David Stein: Brick, Who Found Herself in Architecture, illustrated by Julia Rothman
When Brick was just a baby, tall buildings amazed her. Her mother said, "Great things begin with small bricks. Look around and you'll see". And so she does. She journeys far from home to find cottages and fortresses, even a Great Wall. And all the while, brick searches for her own special place in the world.
This is a great book for children interested in architecture and construction. Featuring an addendum with information on all of the important buildings Brick encounters on her travels.
