“Pop’s Bridge” is a historical fiction book that follows the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is a thoughtful book that takes the reader into the mind of a child whose father is working on the construction of the bridge. The child feels a certain pride for his father’s part in the bridge with thoughts of “my pop built that bridge” and “no one can be as proud as I am…my dad is a skywalker,” but an accident gives him a new perspective. The art is complements the story nicely without overshadowing the message of understanding.

This book would be a good opening to a visit to San Francisco, and the author’s note at the end provides even more background into the bridge’s construction and its designer. ( )

Pop’s Bridge does something that I love to see in a picture book: the main character grows. I feel as though many children believe that their parent is almost a superhero and that no matter what that parent does that they are the most important. This is made even more significant in this book as there is also a racial component to this comparison as Robert believes his welder father must be more important than the immigrant painters. The growth comes as Robert realizes that every person is important, especially in dangerous jobs where lives can be lost at any moment. ( )

I really loved this book because of the way the words and pictures complimented each other. I had read this book last year for a project, and I remembered it very vividly when we were told to select a historical fiction book. One thing I loved about this story was the growth and development of the main character. This story is told from the perspective of a young boy named Robert. Robert's father is helping to build the Golden Gate Bridge. At the beginning of the story, Robert feels that his dad’s job is more important than his friend’s dad’s job because his dad is a sky walker and his friend’s dad is only a painter. By the end of the story, he realizes that they both played a very important part in building the bridge. At the beginning of the story he hid the last piece of the Golden Gate Bridge puzzle they were working on. He did this because he wanted his dad to put in the last piece instead of his friend’s dad. By the end of the story, he cuts the piece and half and asks both the fathers to put the last piece in together. I loved seeing the growth and maturity of Robert. The growth of the bridge seemed to symbolize the growth of Robert as well.
I also liked that at the end of the book, the author provided a factual note. This note told actual facts about the bridge’s construction and real life quotes from some of the individuals who were important to the bridge’s construction. This was a nice follow up to a very accurate realistic fiction story. In addition, it allowed the author to incorporate non-fictional information without forcing it into the story.
Lastly, I also liked the physical layout of the illustrations in this book. Most of the pages were set up with text on the left and illustrations on the right. The text was framed with a simple border, while the illustrations on the left side took up the entire page. I liked how large the illustrations were because they matched the immensity of the bridge being built. I also liked that the illustrations showed when the boys were looking through the binoculars. For example, the bags where the bridge breaks and men fall into the bay below, there is blackness around a circle-shaped illustration. This is supposed to show the real picture the boys are looking through the binocular. I think the overall message of this book is no person is more important than another. No matter what job a person has, that job is needed to create something bigger, and without those people that “something bigger” can’t be created. The overall message is to value and appreciate all people and what they do. ( )

Eve Bunting’s Pop’s Bridge is an entertaining read that utilizes inner and outer dialogue very effectively. The story follows two young boys that adore their dad and are very interested in his work on constructing the Golden Gate Bridge. After dramatic events and a flush of panic during the fall of the safety net and scaffolding, the sense of love and respect for their family, especially their father, is apparent and a critical component of the story.
The story follows Robert and Charlie as they look on in amazement as their father works his job as a construction worker on the Golden Gate Bridge. The dialogue provides character development that allows the reader to understand the depth of their love and respect from their father. The dialogue also shows their excitement when watching or learning about his work, which makes the climax more powerful and suspenseful. The panic in Charlie and Robert’s dialogue as they look for their dad after the scaffolding falls on the bridge underscores the panic as they frantically attempt to find their dad on the bridge as others fall into the water. Without the dialogue, it would be difficult for the reader o see the emotion in Robert, Charlie, and their father, thus creates a disconnect between the level of adoration hey have for their father and the amount that is visible to the reader.

I liked this book for two main reasons and I feel that this is a very great book because of these reasons. First, I think that this book had a very important meaning, and second I think that the illustrations in the story were extremely well done and helped me picture exactly what the main character was describing. In the story, the main character, who is also the narrator, starts out by mentioning that his father is a "high-iron man," who is building the Golden Gate bridge. The narrator says that the "skywalkers," like his father, "have the most important job of all." He also mentions that his friend Charlie's dad is a painter working on the bridge, but that he thinks the painters' jobs are less important than his father's. After an accident, in which the scaffolding from the bridge crashed into the water, Charlie has a change of heart. His father ends up being unharmed by the incident, but he panics when he cannot seem to find Charlie's dad. He ends up finding Charlie's dad, however, and he comes to the realization that everyone who helped in the making of the bridge played an important role, and nobody was more important than anyone else. I liked that the character developed in this way and this made the meaning of the story stick out to me. The illustrations were also incredible, and they made the story really come to life. I was able to picture every scene in the story, because the illustrations were all so detailed. I specifically enjoyed the image of the son, the father, and the mother standing by the water at night, looking at the bridge that the father had been working so hard all day to help make. The big idea in this story was that no one is more important or better than anyone else, and that it takes teamwork to get a job done well. ( )
