How Do Bridges Not Fall Down?
Every youngster has spent time building something, whether it is a sandcastle on the beach or a tower of blocks, a building of Lincoln Logs or a city of Legos. Building is second nature to us, but how it all works, how buildings stay standing or how bridges don’t fall is a mystery to many. Kids are curious about how things work and how things come to be. This terrific book covers five different kinds of engineering and architectural marvels — Bridges, Locks that Move Ships, Column and Beam Constructions, Skyscrapers, and Ancient Buildings. The book explains the basics of how they are built and how they continue to stand. Author Jennifer Shand writes an original text that leads kids to infer about these different topics; this way kids get a better understanding of the processes.
Illustrator Srimalie Bassani completes the lessons with bright, fun illustrations and diagrams that support the text beautifully. The last six pages of the book have several photographs as well as illustrations that support and review each segment in the book. This book will excite budding builders to try new projects while learning how things work.
