Amber loves nothing better than to hang out with her two best friends, Charlotte and Haylee. One day the girls stumble upon an old fallen bridge. Just beyond is a tire swing that Amber's dad hoisted high in a tree so the girls could swing to their hearts' content. But the old bridge, now fallen, prevents them from using the swing. Amber is determined to figure out a way to solve the problem. What will she do? Can she rely upon the skills her parents have taught her when faced with a tough situation or problem? Will she give up or can Amber muster the confidence to figure out a plan so the girls can have yet another adventure for the day?
In Amber and the Fallen Bridge, author Kelli Curtis brilliantly incorporates a simple play day story with a message that inspires young people to have the confidence to rely on themselves to solve problems and to use their skills to realize their dreams.
