Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

The true story of America's most beloved symbol -- a tale of art and idealism.

With her right hand she lifts a torch, the light of liberty. In her left hand she holds a book whose cover reads JULY IV MDCLXVI, the date of the signing of the United States' Declaration of Independence. Under her left foot is a broken chain, a symbol of the end of slavery.

The Statue of Liberty pays homage to what is best about the United States, yet it originated in France. Living under the repressive rule of a self-proclaimed emperor, sculptors Edouard de Laboulaye and Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi wanted to show their countrymen that tyranny is not inevitable and that there is a place in the world where all citizens have unalienable rights that no government can take from them.

After two decades of planning, cajoling, fundraising, designing and building, these artists brought their dream of Liberty across the ocean. Now, 125 years after she was placed on her pedestal in New York Harbor, she continues to inspire people all over the world.

So does her story.

   Perfect book for read aloud for the 4th of July!!!
This step into reading is love! I did use some other books to tell the story. I also bought a large popup version, but it was waaaaaaaay too long for a read-aloud. This book was absolutely perfect! I wish it came in a larger size for a large group, but we used a projector and were able to make the same thing with a document camera to expand the images. BOOK LOVES THIS BOOK!
   Good book
I think I would have made this book level 3 alone for the sculptor's name, which is impossible for even a 1st grader to sound out or figure out without help. But the text is also a bit lengthy for Level 2. However, no worries were shown. It is a great book, and I placed it just with my Level 3 books to be used later. I try to avoid reading these to my children before having them read on their own. Otherwise, they read the story just and then I can 't really assess their reading progress when they memorize it to me.
   Love it!! Way better than I thought!!
Cool facts about the statue, who made it, who helped where it stands. Now, most ADULTSOLDER STUDENTS probably know this info, or most of the info... My son, however, who is and in the 1st grade his school is a MATH and READING focused school at this age. Science is involved very little history, science is involved. He will be going to 2nd grade in August, and I have purchased so many kid friendly history and science books for him to read over the summer to help him prepare for 2nd grade!
   This book is easy enough for him to read and full of fun ...
