Whether you do a study of famous USA monuments in your classroom or library or you are just looking for an amazing new non-fiction book to share with your students, this book fits the bill!
If you had to name a statue, any statue, odds are good you'd mention the Statue of Liberty.
Have you seen her?
She's in New York.
She's holding a torch.
And she's in mid-stride, moving forward.
In this fascinating and fun take on nonfiction, Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris investigate a seemingly small trait of America's most emblematic statue. What they find is about more than history, more than art. What they find in the Statue of Liberty's right foot is the powerful message of acceptance that is essential of an entire country's creation.
