What a great description of setting. I really was compelled to read this aloud. I've read books about the construction of the Statue of Liberty before, but this one really captured the essence of excitement that surrounded the erection of this great monument. Told in fragmented sentences it really brings the pandemonium of the scene to life and the illustraions are just right for this sort of book.

I love that before a teacher reads this book to her class that it offers a not to read to the students; it starts out as a note and tells them to imagine what it would be like to be a little boy in 1886 standing on the foot of an enormous statue. This would be a great book to introduce a section about American and how Lady Liberty was founded! LOVED THIS BOOK!
It was nice and the pictures are pretty.
