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

"Rollicking rhymes and elegant artwork should delight playroom block stackers and someday builders and architects alike."-Publishers Weekly,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

"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."-Booklist
