Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Symbolizing freedom and hope, the majestic Statue of Liberty stands on an island in New York Harbor. Built as a gift of friendship by France, Lady Liberty's formal name is "Liberty Enlightening the World." Two million people a year visit the statue and many of them climb the 354 steps to the crown to view from the windows located there. Frenchman Edouard de Laboulaye had the idea for the statue and Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi was the sculptor. Americans raised the money for the pedestal on which Lady Liberty stands, thanks to the efforts of publisher Joseph Pulitzer. Many interesting facts are given about this famous structure in the book which is part of the "National Landmarks" series. Important dates, a glossary, a fast facts section, and additional sources are included with excellent historical and color photographs. The simple text makes this a good source for young readers. 2002, Bridgestone Books/Capstone Press,
