Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-The Statue of Liberty explains the friendship between France and the new United States that began during the American Revolution and how this relationship led French artist Fr d ric Auguste Bartholdi to design the statue symbolizing America's principles of freedom and liberty. The book also explains how the statue became an important symbol for the millions of immigrants passing through New York City in the late 19th century. The Bald Eagle explains why the "proud-looking" bird was chosen to be a symbol for the United States. Included are interesting tidbits of information, such as Ben Franklin's preference for the practical turkey over the scavenger eagle. Washington Monument explains the importance of George Washington as the leader of the Continental Army and America's first president, and the nation's desire to construct a fitting memorial to him. These books have effective illustrations, mixing contemporary and period photography with paintings, drawings, and other visual artifacts. Each page has no more than three sentences of information and new vocabulary is identified in bold and defined in the glossary. Serviceable choices for beginning reports.-Edward Sullivan, White Pine School, TN Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    An excellent resource

    A young girl and her father are inside the crown of the Statue of Liberty. This massive statue holds her torch aloft as she "towers over New York City." The statue is actually made of copper, but "copper turns green when it sits outside." The statue itself has come to stand for freedom. She is sporting robes and a crown, has a torch in one hand and a tablet in the other. The tablet has the date July 4, 1776. The numbers are carved in the Roman numerals IV MDCCLXXVI, which "is a way of writing numbers with letters of the alphabet." Americans were once under the rule of a British king, but "fought a war to be free." France also helped in our effort to be free and when the war was over the "French people wanted to give the United States a gift." It was decided that French artist Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi would create a "big statue for Americans." Eventually it was decided that the statue would end up on Bedloe's Island in New York City's harbor. The island was eventually known as "Liberty Island." Work began on the "statue in Paris, France in 1875." In this book you will see how they hammered the copper sheets, how they nailed them to an iron frame, how they transported the statue to New York, how it was put back together, the celebration on October 28, 1886, what it came to stand for, when the statue was cleaned up a century later, and how people can now visit her. This is a nicely written overview of the history of the Statue of Liberty and what she now stands for. The text was very easy to understand and the accompanying photographs were very well chosen. When the history of the statue is discussed we are able to view art reproductions and striking period photographs of the actual construction of the statue in France. Small captions also give out important informative vignettes. For example, when we see a ferry boat crossing the water, the caption states, "There's no way to drive to the statue. So visitors travel by boat." In the back of the book is a general map of the "New York City Area," some "Fun Facts," an index, a glossary, and additional recommended book and website resources to explore. Quill says: This book would be an excellent resource for young students to learn about one of our most cherished symbols of freedom, the Statue of Liberty.
