When a little mouse plucks a flower from an old wall, a brick comes loose and he can see through it for the first time. He and the other animals keep removing more bricks until they can see that another group of animals lives on the other side. Together they then use the bricks to build a bridge to join their lands. Brick by Brick is a clever, timely, wordless book that conveys the idea that building bridges to connect us is more effective than building walls that divide. It is a hopeful message for this holiday season.
~ Eight Cousins— From Holiday Picks 2016
A little mouse innocently plucks a flower from an old wall when a brick comes loose, and he can see through it for the first time. He and the other animals gradually and resolutely remove more and more bricks, until at last they can see another group of animals. Together they use the bricks that once divided them to construct a bridge to join their islands. This clever and touching wordless board book shows that walls can become bridges when everyone works together. It's a hopeful message that all children should see now.
