Bridges intrigue children, and readers will have a lot to look at here. The book's most striking feature is the handsome pictures, some in two-page spreads that fill the pages. They feature covered bridges, toy bridges, and log bridges, as well as several notable bridges--for instance, the Golden Gate Bridge and London Bridge, though these are not identified by name. The rhyming text is a bit sing-songy at times, but its brevity is a plus, making the book more accessible to the youngest listeners. The text plus the easy-to-see artwork make this a good story-hour choice.
