Bridges are fascinating structures that people see every day while traveling. Bridges can be tall, short, long, wide, or narrow, with lights seen at night. Iconic bridges are known all over the world. Brenda Fulmore's four-year-old granddaughter decided she wanted to be an architect after coloring in the bridges coloring book.

Fulmore helps children color their way into imagining their "Greatness."

This coloring book not only let my little one express herself, but it also helped her with coloring in the lines. She really is enjoying this coloring book.
