ALA Booklist
Suspension, beam, arch, cantilever ese common bridge types are introduced in the first half of this book, part of the Science of Engineering series (7 titles). Information is chunked into a main paragraph describing a bridge's design, history, and construction, while the remainder of the two-page spread features relevant facts, real-world examples, and digital illustrations. Educators may want additional resources on hand to better explain the physics at work in these bridges (e.g., compression and tension), as they are only briefly described here. The book's best bits feature unusual bridges, bridge disasters, and tunnels. Readers will love seeing a "draw bridge" that curls up like a pill bug and the clever ways engineers manage to build tunnels underwater. While the science is light, the book's basic concepts are sturdy.

Discover the laws of nature that apply to bridges and tunnels.

The Science of Engineering series feature different forms of architecture and transport engineering. Features include funny and interesting illustrations; real-world science examples; side panels to tackle complex subject matter in a fun and relevant way; detailed glossary and more.Over time, scientists and engineers began to understand the laws of nature that apply to bridges and tunnels. They understood the strengths and weaknesses of materials better, too - and began to create new ones, like concrete and steel. This fascinating guide to bridges and tunnels explores unique examples of each, what they're made of, and all of the unexpected twists and turns taken in their development.
