I am sure many Americans know about the Statue of Liberty, but how many of o us understand the history behind this gift from the French people in 1884. I know I learned so much reading this book.
Doreen Rappaport writes an excellent story to share with children or to be read by older children. She introduces you to many of the people who were important to the building of Lady Liberty.
Did you know Edouard De Laboulaye, a professor of law, formed the idea and Auguste Bartholdi was the sculptor? Did you know it took 10 years to create Lady Liberty? You will be introduced to others and Americans who helped raise money to assist the French in making this landmark a reality.
I think we owe it to our children to help them learn the history of our great country and the connection that France and the United States have had since the Revolutionary War.
