Have you been to San Francisico? I must return to this beautiful city in the summer because it is a charming city with lots to do. The food is excellent as well. My photos were taken in the late fall and early winter so I didn't mind the haze and fog. I really enjoyed my visit immensely! Have you read any of Eve Bunting's books before?
I absolutely love this wonderful, educational children's book, Pop's Bridge by Eve Bunting. I think this is Eve's best work, telling of the building of the San Francisco. You will learn many great historical facts. The narrative is wonderful. "There's a crew of more than a thousand men working on that bridge, Robert, including [your friend] Charlie's dad," says mom. "I know that, but I just shrug. To me, it's Pop's bridge."
The illustrations by C.F. Payne remind me of Norman Rockwell style. The artist also is the illustrator Molly's Surprise: A Christmas Story, Book Three (The American Girls Collection), True Heart, Casey at the Bat: A Ballad of the Republic Sung in the Year 188, Who Grew My Soup?
My pop is building the Golden Gate Bridge.
