This Bridge Will Not Be Gray by Dave Eggers


Originally published in: 2015

What it’s about: How the Golden Gate Bridge came to be painted orange.

What made me pick it up: I saw it on another library’s Instagram. It was by Dave Eggers. It was short.

My favorite things: The bits of humor Eggers weaves through this story. And the unique illustrations.

Who it’s great for: Parents who want to read a longer picture book to a slightly older child. Older children who can read a more in-depth picture book themselves. Anyone interested in bridges, this bridge specifically, or civil discourse. Those looking for a quick, factual, entertaining nonfiction book.

Erica’s rating: four-shells
