Read in November, 2011 — I own a copy

I love picture books based around physical landmarks that kids can see and relate to. It gives the world around us a little more 'life'.

The minimal colour illustrations are an indication of it's printing era (1942) and are warmly drawn. It does look and feel dated, but if read together I'm certain many children will still take to the story. In fact, I didn't find it a particularly 'girls' or 'boys' book, because although the setting of boats & bridges are more likely to appeal to boys, the theme is more emotional than that and will ultimately appeal to girls too.
