The Brooklyn Bridge: The story of the world's most famous bridge and the remarkable family that built it. (Wonders of the World Book) Reviews
Very happy with The Brooklyn Bridge. It is beautifully illustrated with very detailed information about the bridge construction.
Grandkids loved this book after visiting the bridge!
Very nice book.
Use this with my fifth grade bridge unit!
I bought this for my husband, he'd had years ago a book on the history of the bridge. Not sure this was the one but very pleased and think he will be too. Good condition and good delivery.
Great story and photos of a time in history we had never heard about. One family's passion about engineering has positively affected generations.
A children's book. I thought it was to be full of information that an adult would enjoy.
This book shows exactly how, step by step, the Brooklyn Bridge was created. Great illustrations and graphics. Students really enjoyed it.
