A clever book about the Statue of Liberty walking across the US in search of those who journeyed past her to immigrate to the US?

The best part of this book comes in two forms: an opportunity to read aloud a book to a child who may it have seen much of the US and the acknowledgement of how important she is to the people of New York ( who send letters to her asking to return).

My students loved the idea of a statue coming to life and walking across, plus the book opened up a discussion of the impor

What happens when Lady Liberty gets a bit bored? She decides to roam across America to explore the nation she is a symbol of. After seeing farmland, the Grand Canyon, and the Golden Gate Bridge, she learns that she is missed in New York. New York is thrilled to have her back and she returns to her post overlooking a nighttime New York City.

A great book for teaching simple rhyme scheme to elementary school students. Each page has a consistent and easy to follow AABB scheme. I think the idea of t

I liked the size of Liberty - they didn't make her look just like a person but showed her larger than life-ness. Good detail on the close-ups. Great opening page illustration. I like the font. Even with all the detail in the illustrations it doesn't look too busy. Good rhyme, actually. I like how there are two stories - her travel through the country and how the New Yorkers miss her and want her back.

Good book about country's pride told in poetry. Can be used to teach rhyming words as author uses AB poetry patterns.
