Do you share your home with a budding architect under four feet tall?  Do you find yourself wincing at Lego© bricks underfoot, surrounded by mountains of imaginative artwork, or marvelous contraptions made from your missing office supplies?  If so, have I got some books for you.  Each one of these celebrates the art of architecture and is sure to spark a child’s imagination or even give them a glimpse of their future selves.  For any child who has the architectural bug (or just appreciates beauty and a great story), I recommend these 15 fab books.  Pick them up at your local library, book store, or click on the covers to link to Amazon.
