Here's a great book for showing kids the determination and energy that went into constructing, shipping, and assembling one of America's most celebrated symbols of freedom and democracy. Through the eyes of four fictional boys, readers will be transported back to the 19th century to witness the evolution of Lady Liberty from the time the monument was built in Paris up through her highly anticipated arrival in New York. Each of the characters helps to illuminate a different stage in the process—the apprentice in French sculptor Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi's studio; a worker on the ship that carried Liberty across the Atlantic; a newsboy on the streets of New York; and an ironworker who helped erect the grand monument in New York Harbor. Vibrant, full-color paintings throughout, as well as detailed technical drawings to show how each part of the statue was assembled, make this a highly visual book that will appeal to even the most reluctant readers.
