Picture Book Review: The Bridge of the Golden Wood

A child with a knack for solving problems helps some hungry fish and finds a treasure. Illustrated folk tale teaches how to spot opportunities to help others and make money; comes with ideas for businesses; money-making activities; and online resources on finding customers, managing money, job ideas, and moving up in an organization (for kids ages 4 and up). Young children will be captivated by the story; older ones will want to apply the things they learn about business. Teach someone to fish. This how-to book on work bridges the gap between what kids learn in school about jobs, careers, small business, finance, economics, and what they should know (how to serve others).

4 Stars

The Bridge of the Golden Wood is a lovely retelling of a folk tale about earning a living. The illustrations are beautiful and the simple story of a boy taking the advice of an old woman and clearing a log to enable fish to eat demonstrates how helping others can result in a treasure. I love the simplicity of this story. I gave this four stars because of the visibility of the words on the page.
