The Story of the Statue of Liberty

by

The Story of the Statue of Liberty Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Statue of Liberty has welcomed millions of immigrants to America since 1886. But her story really began 15 years earlier, when the French sculptor Frederic Bartholdi visited New York to plan the statue he would later present to the American people as a gift from France. "Outstanding. The exceptional drawings are visually delightful. A striking book".--"School Library Journal", starred review. Full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

"Written for the youngest audience...the text is very simple yet manages to convey all the major events in Liberty's creation....The full-color watercolors show amazing detail and are extremely rich."--Horn Book.
