Lorgnette, 5/1/1999
"This story celebrates the daily routines of life in a metropolitan high-rise apartment building. It has a well-written lyrical text, which is marvelously augmented with vibrant illustrations. This book will appeal to both urban and rural children, especially when combined with the interactive games online."

Children's Bookwatch, Midwest Book Review, 10/1/1998
"The smells, sights, and sounds of the city come alive in spirited, lyrical verse in Robin Ahrens's My Building, which is beautifully illustrated by Ilja Bereznickas. Urban and rural children alike will enjoy discovering the ins and outs and daily routines of life in a metropolitan high-rise. Joyous, exuberant illustrations add to the merriment, creating a celebration of the wonderful and diverse people that live and work in a city apartment building.

"The children reading and enjoying My Building can also visit the Winslow Press Web site and combine the age-old magic of a picture book with the wonder of the Web. My Building's interactive Web pages feature free fun-filled games and carefully researched links to more sites about houses and people across America. Highly recommended."
