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.
