The Eiffel Tower

By Sharon Katz Cooper
Picture Books

It was the late 1800s in Paris, France, and the World Fair was coming. The government held a contest to find someone who could design a centerpiece for it, and the famous engineer Gustave Eiffel was the chosen winner. The citizens protested about the “horrible” and “ugly” tower being built in the city, but Eiffel never gave up on his vision. This book brings a fun and youthful twist to the history of the Eiffel Tower. I enjoyed reading this and learning more about the iconic landmark.
