This simple but stylish picture book features two children playing with their blocks. Ruby is building something with red blocks while Benji is using blue blocks.

When Benji takes one of Ruby's blocks, a tussle occurs and all the blocks fall over and are mixed together. Now what? At first the two children aren't too happy with the situation but then decide to share their blocks and work together to construct something new.

It looks like sharing is more fun than working alone, but what's going to happen when Guy comes along with his wagon filled with green blocks? Will harmony still prevail?

There isn't a lot of text here, but your toddler will get the idea because the illustrations hammer home the idea that sharing is the best way to make friends and play without squabbling.
