Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Written for children just beginning to read, this nonfiction book in the “Wonders of America,” “Ready-to-Read” series tells a brief story of the Statue of Liberty in simple sentences. Most pages contain only one sentence. Readers first find out where the statue is located, and that “she holds the torch high to welcome all who come to the United States.” There is some information about the sculptor, the reason France gave the statue to our country, how we built the pedestal, and how school children raised money by saving their nickels and dimes to help pay for the pedestal. One illustration shows how the statue is made from sheets of copper wrapped around a steel sculpture. Clear and simple illustrations should help children understand the text. A page for adults at the end of the story gives additional facts about the statue. It includes the poem, “The New Colossus,” which was added to the wall of the pedestal. The short text provides much educational information, and the subject should be interesting for beginning readers. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
