Everybody in the Red Brick Building
This book has so much to offer with a colourful paper collage and an entertaining storyline. Reading “Everybody in the Red Brick Building” makes me think of my all-time favourite classic book “Goodnight Moon”. Both books address the busy world we are living in. It all started when a baby wakes up crying and a series of nighttime adventures begin – a flying rocket, a talking parrot, and a game of flashlight tag.
The engaging cumulative narrative showing the diverse characters at night will make the reading-aloud fun and entertaining especially when it is accompanied with rhythmic repetition and texts filled with onomatopoeia.
The ending scenes from the book – the street sweeper going by, acorns plonking down, wind chimes, and the baby getting snuggles make it perfect for a great bedtime story.
