This is one of the most comprehensive books I have read about the Statue of
Liberty. Dave Eggers brilliantly wrote the “facts” about this American landmark in
a way that students can easily understand without reading a dense informational
text. The illustrations also tell the story magnificently. My student guided reading
packet contains the best of Reading Comprehension strategies, critical thinking,
and Post Reading Activities. Reading this book as a class, is a perfect model for
students to then do their own research about another symbol of America, either
individually, or in partners.
