When Brandon Block and his friends aren’t picked to play, they come up with a different way to pass the time!

Lucky Left Out Excerpt:

The morning sunlight streamed through the large windows of the classroom, painting warm squares of light onto the colorful building blocks nestled on the shelves by the cozy play mat. A gentle hum of excitement filled the air as the blocks, organized by size and shape, awaited the arrival of their most favorite people – the children!

Each block had its own special spot. There were the sturdy rectangles, stacked neatly in a tall tower, dreaming of becoming the foundation for a mighty castle. The playful squares giggled amongst themselves, wondering if they might transform into the bright windows of a bustling city. And Brandon, a proud purple triangle block, stood at the front of his section, ready for another day of playtime adventures with the students.
