While I wouldn't recommend building things out of library books, I must say this book did a good job building up to it's compromise where two kids learn the fun of reading and building. Yet, in spite of it's cute story, this book seems more like it gauged at adults given its language and the fact that the librarian indirectly managed to teach the two kids their respective lesson.
