This simple picture book showcases the exciting world of imaginative play. A little girl plays with some building blocks. She starts with a kennel, then a house, then a bigger house, then a road with a bridge. Her world keeps expanding to the shouts of ‘Bigger! Bigger!’ until… a baby crashes through the scene and her building blocks topple to the ground.
With help from the baby, she’ll start again and this time they’ll build bigger and ‘Stronger! Stronger!’
A clever concept, imaginatively shown in bright and chunky illustrations with minimal text. This could inspire some creative play at home, and it's lovely to see a little girl shown in a construction role.
