Booklist - 11/01/2016 “Two, four, six. / Look at all the bricks!” An entire community rallies to make, stack, transport, and lay bricks in a variety of structures in this cheery counting book. The process begins small but then quickly grows as more and more bricks are needed to build “Grand hotels. / Wishing wells. / Railroad yards. / Boulevards. / Fountains! Pools! / Public schools!” Cyrus arranges a lively mix of four-line verses and limericks that serves a dual purpose, applying practical application to the usefulness of bricks while cleverly finding a way to engage young readers in counting. Bold text with varying font sizes adorns scenes of gradually escalating construction, staffed with workers young and old, male and female, with a wide variety of skin tones, and all wearing the same apparel but keeping to different tasks. Readers will have fun shouting out repetitive lines and locating specific workers from page to page. The bouncy rhythm and energetic action make this a fantastic pick for a group story time. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
