Blocks by Irene Dickson*

Ruby is playing with her red blocks.
Benji comes along with his blue blocks.
They build, side by side, contently until Benji takes one of Ruby's red blocks.
A toddler argument ensues with shouts of "mine!".
A wonderful book about sharing.
I love the thought that the author/illustrator put into the design and concepts.  A parent/reader can really expand on colors by pointing out and talking about the following:
1. The first letters of their names correlates with the color blocks they are using
2. Their shirts and shoes or socks match the color blocks they are using.
The end pages are well thought out too.
Larger size book so perfect for baby/toddler story time.
*Highly recommend.
-Borrowed from the library.
