" Reading this book is helped along by having looked up at, walked on and looked down from the Golden Gate Bridge. The story is told by a boy about him and his friend, whose fathers each work on the bridge, as they watched the bridge being built between 1933 and 1937. A nice touch is the jigsaw puzzle of what the bridge was expected to look like that the boys themselves worked on. Well executed illustrations that are always dominated by the iconic towers and the expansive web of cables. " said.

" This book tells the story of the building of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. The story is told through the eyes of a little boy whose father is helping build the bridge. Through a series of events the boy finds out that all the jobs of the workers are equally important. This picture book does a great job of describing one of the most important feats of civil engineering in American history. " said.

"Pop's Bridge gives the perspective of a boy who is fascinated by the construction of The Golden Gate Bridge, primarily because his father is on the crew building the bridge. Through the story we see the boy's pride in his father and his fear when he realizes that his father could have been injured. This book could be used to talk about how all jobs are necessary no matter how others view them, and it could also launch research into the events that took place when building this bridge and other major structures." said.

"Pop's Bridge gives a great look into the pride and dangers that go into building a bridge. Students will enjoy looking at the building of the great Golden Gate bridge through a young boy's eyes. It is truly a touching story and can be integrated into a unit on bridges or historical landmarks. Students can find many connections between themselves, their family and the book. Students may not understand some of the feelings if they have a missing father figure. Students will enjoy learning about this special bridge for this perspective." said.

"In 1933 construction began on the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge in San Fransisco, CA. This fictional story tells about a boy named Robert whose father is a "high iron man" working to help build the bridge. The boy's friend has a father who is also working on the bridge. When an accident happens, Robert learns that every man working on the bridge has an important and dangerous job to do. This is another engaging and well written story by Eve Bunting that keeps the reader engaged, thinking, and predicting through the whole book. The pictures are also very well done in this story. Best used with children between 2nd and 5th grades. " said.

"The book "Pop's Bridge" provides one boy's perspective during the building of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Robert's father is one of the skywalkers that works high up on the bridge to place all of the iron pieces into position. After witnessing an accident with workers on the bridge, Robert learns a valuable lesson about the importance of every member on a team of workers. This book shares information about the bridge being built, and the illustrations demonstrate life and clothing attire in the 1930's in California. Eve Bunting is a wonderful author who uses her life experiences to create books that address social issues." said.

"This is my second historical fiction book entry:

Summary: Robert's father is a skywalker who is helping build the Golden Gate Bridge in the mid 1930's. Robert thinks his father's job is the most important one, until he realizes it is a team effort. Eve Bunting does a nice job in this story honoring every person who helped build the Golden Gate Bridge.

Graphics: When looking at C.F. Payne's illustrations you'll feel like you're reading the Saturday Evening Post.

How to use in the classroom: This book could be used during an engineering unit to look closely at one type of bridge, the suspension bridge. Children could also view footage displaying how the Golden Gate Bridge was really built and compare the footage to the book.
