Great book for learning about bridges especially for younger kids.

Our 5 and half year old loves this (and the whole series), and as the reader you can pick and choose some of the reading. It has plenty of photos and many ways to start up conversations and be able to answer them well.
I think I even learnt a couple of little things I didn't know from this series as there are many in the range along with this bridges one.

I did think this one was done really well and "easier" for younger kids. Some of the others in the range are alittle more advanced due to the content to learn or take in, but he still enjoyed them and learnt something..... it is just that this one is more streamlined on bridges so the focus is easier and less chance of getting caught up in a lot of bigger facts while still giving real information.
My son was keen to design his own bridge after reading and even asked me to re-read it to remind him of some facts so he could think about the bridge he wanted to design and how to do it properly.
