The Bell in the Bridge by Ted Kooser

Is the sound Charlie hears from the bridge an echo or is someone else out there? A lyrical, resonant story by poet Ted Kooser, splendidly illustrated by Barry Root.

When Charlie visits his hardworking grandparents in the summer, he often is left to himself, and he is lonely. So he goes out to play by the stream, with a tin can for tadpoles, a special weed-whacking stick, and stones to drop from the iron bridge. One day he notices that when he strikes the bridge with a big stone, it rings with a bong like a church bell and echoes into the valley. And sometimes a faint, very distant, different-sounding bong comes back. Is it an echo of an echo? Or could someone else, like him, be ringing another bridge altogether? The Bell in the Bridge reverberates with the mysteries and possibilities of childhood discovery, enhanced by illustrations that echo the warmth and magic of a solo summertime adventure.

Age Range: 6 to 9.

Dimensions:  10-1/4 inches x 7-1/2 inches.
