NieKo – The Bridge Building Robot & No Bridge! No Fair! Free Children’s e-book

Hi, I wrote two children’s e-books on bridge building robots and I want to give them away for free. (pdf download links below.)

Why am I giving them away for free? Well, I want kids to be interested in bridges and I thought the books would be an entertaining way to introduce kids to bridges! And to be honest, I would love it if I could find a (paper) publisher for my books. (So if you know anybody in the publishing industry…)

I am also going to ask two favors if you download the e-books.

1) Donate some money to the Animal Rescue League of Iowa ( (links below)

100% of donations will go to ARL.

Or go to

2) If you like the books (or you hate them), go to Amazon and give my books a review. You don’t have to buy them to give a review. (links below)

REVIEWS Please! (or buy the book)

Using them on a computer.
The books look good (I think) on a computer or an ipad or on a phone or… you get the idea. To view the book full screen on a computer, type Ctrl-l (L) and use the “esc” button to get back out of full screen.

First Book.
NieKo – The Bridge Building Robot
NieKo is an introduction to building simple concrete beam highway bridges. These bridges are everywhere in the United States and around the world. The robots entertain the kids while they (and their parents) learn about bridges!

Second Book
No Bridge! No Fair! (Bridge Building Robots)

How do you get across the river to the fair if the bridge washes out? You build a new one! In this book I used the names of our cats Eddie, Pete, and Rose along with our dogs Emma, Maggie and Betty and our horse Dudley! (Don’t forget my wife is in there as well…)

Third book?
I received a good idea for the next book from the Happy Pontist (best bridge blog on the web) and I’m trying to figure out a good story. (Or a lousy story, hey I’m an engineer.)
Remember donate if you can and I would appreciate reviews,
