Praise for books in the series:
School Library Connection
"This is a good nonfiction STEM-based book that provides a collection of activities perfect for enthusiastic readers or to combine with a makerspace. The text provides a lot of information about tunnels to interest students, containing a great depth of information about different types of tunnels, why they are needed, how they are designed and built, what machines are used to build them, and examples of famous tunnels. The information provided will satisfy enthusiastic upper elementary school engineers as they learn about different soil types, forces that act on tunnels, and other cool facts. Each chapter ends with up to six different hands-on science projects for kids to do using an engineering notebook, common household items, or the internet. The projects look fun (like building tunnels out of cardboard tubs or making a drill) and could appeal to many different levels of learners. While I think this book is great for enthusiastic students, the cartoon illustrations and long, narrative-style text may not be interesting to readers who just want the quick facts about tunnels. However, if you are looking for new engineering books for upper elementary school students this book would be a good choice. Recommended."
The Children’s Book Review
"The need for more young people to be engaged in and interested in the STEM fields is a hot topic in children’s literature at the moment, so Jennifer Swanson and Bryan Stone’s Bridges! is a welcome addition to the range of non-fiction elementary school level books available. Part of a set of four engineering-focused books for young readers, Bridges! Specifically encourages young readers to interest themselves in bridges not just as amazing landmarks or historical artifacts, but as puzzles in critical thinking and problems to be solved. This is a challenging, hands-on approach to learning which is highly refreshing." Read more online.
