"The bridge is up!
The bus can't go.
So everyone has to wait."
First the bus, then the car, then the bike -- so begins the long line of different vehicles waiting to cross the bridge. What a traffic jam! And when the bridge finally does comes down . . . nobody has to wait!
Babs Bell's simple text and Rob Hefferan's joyous illustrations make this trip a fun, worthwhile read.

PreS. Fun to read aloud, this cumulative picture book tells what happens when a bridge goes up. One after another, vehicles arrive at the water's edge. "The bus can't go, the car can't go, the bike can't go, the truck can't go, the motorcycle can't go . . . so everyone has to wait." Young children, who have trouble waiting for most anything, will enjoy seeing the increasing impatience of animal characters who want to get a move on and their satisfaction when the bridge descends and traffic starts up again. Like the animals' moods, the colors in the artwork seem a bit drab until the bridge goes back down; then the sky lightens to sunny colors, and the drivers and passengers all cross the river. With a childlike air that suits the simple text, the illustrations have a great sense of activity and motion, even when traffic is stopped. Great fun for young children. Carolyn Phelan
