What are you able to build with your blocks? Renowned illustrator Daniel Kirk has joined his "blocks" -- in this case, bright colors, bold shapes, and retro style -- with Robert Louis Stevenson's classic poem to construct a nostalgic yet exuberant celebration of fun and imagination. It is a joyous look at playtime that will encourage toddlers to build dreams all their own!
