Building Blocks: Volume 1 by Joey M. Sifen and Goldylox introduces young readers to two brothers who show them how they can play in any way. They decide to build a tower and keep building blocks until it falls. They decide to make a town where busy people live with the building blocks. Sometimes the game can make you happy and sometimes the game is bad, and the author encourages young readers to accept others for what they are and not to be jealous of someone else's skill. The timeless topic in this book tells readers about the things that matter in life in a very subtle and beautiful way.
The underlying spiritual and positive tones are expressed through rhyming verses which give a lyrical feel while reading the book and make it appealing to children. The illustrations by Goldylox are as delightful as the verses and breathe life into the scenes, giving them a good pace and movement. The messages conveyed through the playful verses are actually insightful and profound but the author's use of words, rhymes, and the illustrations make it easy for children to comprehend them easily.
Books like this should be introduced to children more and more as they are helpful when it comes to teaching good concepts and messages in an adorable way. Messages have better clarity when expressed with the help of illustrations and rhyming verses. It is definitely a good book for tutors and parents to help children learn and practice good thoughts and deeds.
