    1. FORT-BUILDING TIME is an absolutely delightful and lyrical story about the fun of creation and playing outdoors throughout the seasons. The illustrations are whimsical and filled with detail, and the text itself is artwork in itself. This title is a required purchase for elementary libraries and will be a perfect storytime read for primary grades. Thanks to the author and publisher for providing me with a review copy of this title.


    2. Many thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the chance to review this title. All opinions are my own!While I love to see children engaged in organized sports and activities, nothing warms this teacher's heart quite like creativity and imaginative play. Fort Building Time celebrates the idea that children can make their own joy! The characters design different forts all year long, based on the time of year. The charming illustrations and text reinforce seasonal concepts. This book will make a [...]



    3. Lively illustrations, created with watercolor and colored pencil and then finished digitally, complement text that pays tribute to the delights of building a fort with one's friends. As readers will see from the text, any season is just right for building a fort, no matter what materials are being used to do so. There's probably nothing more exciting for youngsters to build these temporary structures where they can have some privacy to do what they want to do. And if the fort happens to fall, so [...]


    4. Celebrate the seasons through play in this picture book that has different forts built by kids throughout the year. Winter starts the book with an ice and snow fort made merry with pine boughs for seating, berries and branches for decorations. Spring has a quiet fort filled with books to read, a cozy blanket hung between trees. Summer takes the fort to the beach with driftwood, towels, starfish and snacks. The fall fort is up in the changing trees with leaves falling all around. But sometimes fo [...]


    5. @kidlitexchange #partnerThank you to @kidlitexchange for the review copies of this picture book. All opinions are my own.Fort Building Time is an adorable picture book for young children. No matter the season, and no matter the place, it can always be fort-building time! Whether you are making snowmen, hunting for daffodils, building sandcastles, or chasing the leaves through the woods, it is fort-building time! I love how the bright and cheery pictures bring each season and fort-building time t [...]


    6. I love everything about this book from opening its inviting cover to the moment that you’re near the end and the kids are already pulling the sheets off their bed and from the linen cupboard so they can build a fort. Journey through the seasons, a snowball-throwing, ice-sliding, fort-building winter, a daffodil-hunting, rainbow-finding, fort-building spring, a sun-sizzling, picnic-eating, fort-building summer, a leaf-chasing, poem-writing, fort-building autumn. Yes, fort building is an all yea [...]


    7. Absolutely loved the art inside of this book! My boys are huge fort builders so we enjoyed reading this one. When I thought of "fort building" before I read this book I immediately thought of inside forts however, this books changed my outlook on that. I do think a image from inside of the book would have made better cover art that was is on the cover. I loved the font of the words and the style of the art but I wasn't a huge fan of the format of the story though the repetitiveness is probably g [...]


    8. This colorful book explains, season by season, why it's always fort-building time. The rhythmic descriptions of each season's virtues pair well with the illustrations of happy children enjoying various outdoor activities from snowball-throwing in winter to sandcastle-shaping in summer. This would work well for any kind of STEM storytime with an engineering theme. Follow it up with a fort-building activity using a few old blankets or a storytime parachute and some cardboard boxes. It will be a hi [...]


    9. Building forts is one of those activities that just about every kid has tried at least one time or another. So this charming picture book will definitely be one that kids can relate to. The poetic text and warm, inclusive illustrations take readers through each of the seasons by listing the fun things to do, and each season includes fort-building! This could be a terrific mentor text to help young writers describe the seasons in their own way.


    10. Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book. All opinions are my own. #kidlitexchange #partnerThis book is beautiful and I love everything about it. Fort-Building Time takes you through the seasons in lyrical prose to encourage creative play. Boy, did I need this right about now as I sit here with the gazillionth day in a row of subzero temperatures. Plus, the gorgeous illustrations of quilts weren’t missed by this quilt-making mama.


    11. Clever concept book focused on building appropriate forts during each of the four seasons. Poetic language describing the seasonal changes as different forts are built to "weather" each of the four seasons. Good addition to a classroom collection for young students learning about these differences.


    12. Fort building is childhood's purest pleasure. Follow a gaggle of children as they build forts throughout the season. Kids are sure to get some ideas for new building projects of their own when they read Fort Building Time by Megan Wagner Lloyd with colorful illustrations by Abigail Halpin.


    13. This is delightfully illustrated book about a timeless childhood pastime. It doesn't have as much story or substance as I hoped for, but will still appeal to many children.


    14. This book is sure to inspire students to build a fort of their own. I also like how Megan describes and incorporates the seasons.








    15. Very cute story about all the wonderful things you can do with your friends throughout the seasons. The illustrations are bright and fun.


    16. Might be able to use this for a STEM storytime. Afterwards, kids could design a fort with cardboard, or a small scale fort with planks or pretty much any building material.



    17. So wonderful! Playing outside, constructing with different materials, diverse, cooperative playing of siblings, Enjoying the seasonal changesJust so many awesome things going on here!




    18. This book was a whimsical trip through the seasons with a diverse group of children. I would definitely use it to teach about the seasons.



    19. Any time is fort building time in this story. Colorful illustrations support the imagination inspiring text as they move through the seasons.
