1 2 3 I Can Build!

TITLE: 1 2 3 I Can Build!
PUBLISHER: Kids Can Press Ltd.
I was intrigued by the cover of this book and was not disappointed when I read it with my son. This book shows the features needed to create a building. Various building words are defined (foundation, interior, exterior, structure, function, tower, etc.) and then demonstrated using a craft your child can make. At the end all the techniques are used to create one large palace. I loved the photos and also that the materials used in the crafts were common household items.
My son and I enjoyed this book and found some fun ideas to try ourselves.
