Editorial Reviews


"A great way to introduce the value of serving others and how thoseefforts lead to a return on the investment. I especially enjoyed thesuggested activities after the story. Whether you want to help childrenlearn the importance of inspired service, become entrepreneurs, or justvalue work, 'The Bridge' is a fun illustrated children's book you willwant to read to the children in your life." - Spencer Harden, mediastrategist
"Encourages kids how to think for themselves...while also thinking of others.... The illustrations throughout the book areabsolutely lovely and bring to life the story of the boy in a peacefully enchanting way. The story is fast-paced and would do well for childrenwith short attention spans but is also fulfilling enough for childrenwho are a bit older. The extra activities and money-making ideas at theend of the book are also nice touches to get kids motivated to be likethe boy in the story, and help them use their imaginations." - RayleighGray, book blogger
"Masterful" - Crystie Cook, poet
"Beautifulillustrations! I love the idea of using this children's book to teachthe value of service along with the rewards for hard work!" - TheresaSneed, author
"[Beckstrand] has done an awesome job makingentrepreneurship easily understandable for young minds. Hope thisinspires many young readers with valuable ideas." - Scott Wilhite,filmmaker
"Designed to help children learn about the value ofwork...and how, by working, you will receive a treasure in return.... an especially good concept for children to learn. There are someadditional online resources and ideas for work that might help bringthem a bit of treasure. I think children with like this parable oflearning how to do service for others. I enjoyed the writing and thecolorful and attractive pictures in the book.... Enjoy." - SonjaNishimoto
"Oh, this book is delightful!... amazing...will hold theinterest of all ages--even my 12-year-old and a 16-year-old. My12-year-old was so excited that there was a red panda throughout. Theillustrations were as engaging as the story itself. After reading thebook both boys started talking about what they could do to earn money.Wow! instant fan!" - Amy Lofgreen, 480 Insider

From the Inside Flap

"Hello," said the boy, curious to know who she was--and why she stared so intently at the dead wood.
"Hello," said the old woman, not taking her eyes from the branches.
 "What are you looking at?" asked the boy.
"Trouble and treasure," she said.
