In this “Bridges” picture book Tasha Paley introduces children to the concept that a bridge can connect any two things, whether real or imagined. It can even connect people to one another as they share feelings. In her usual whimsical way, she
explores many different
kinds of bridges and
encourages children to use
their imagination and artisitic abilities to create bridges never before conceived of.
