Pop's Bridge

Product Description:

K-Gr. 3. The bridge is San Francisco's fabled Golden Gate, and Robert's father is helping to build it. Pop is a high-iron worker, what folks called a "skywalker." And, in the year 1937, he is one of more than a thousand men who are engaged in constructing the "impossible bridge." Robert's friend Charlie Shu's father, a painter, is also involved, but Robert secretly feels Pop's job is more important than Mr. Shu's. Then an accident forces him to rethink things. Distinguished by its lovely, understated text and Payne's lavish and affectionate mixed-media pictures, this picture book does a quietly successful job of humanising one of the most important feats of civil engineering in American history. For more about skywalkers, recommend Deborah Hopkinson's Sky Boys (2006), about workers who built the Empire State Building. Michael Cart
