Lady Liberty: A Biography

by Doreen Rappaport

Kids' Wings Award for Outstanding Literature
Texas Bluebonnet Award NomineeSM

"Every part of her shouts freedom!"

You know what the Statue of Liberty is, don't you? But do you know how she came to be? Who thought of her? Do you know which country gave such a colossal gift to the United States? Do you know why she was given? Can you imagine how she was so perfectly formed? What materials compose her skin? Her skeleton? How could something that was 30 stories tall, that weighed as much as 112 elephants, have been moved across an ocean? Do you know when she was dedicated? Do you know what lies on the pedestal beside her feet? Do you know what she symbolizes?

Lady Liberty: A Biography answers these questions and more through the beautiful full-page illustrations providing the backgrounds for stories of those who made her possible: her creator, her sculptor, her structural engineer, the poet who wrote her inscription, the construction supervisor, a publisher, a little girl in New Jersey, and the thousands of immigrants who have been welcomed by her torch.
