|About the Book|
I found this book to be very enjoyable. One thing that I learned reading this is that the United States had to pay for the pedestal that the Statue of Liberty sits on. I did not know this, though I did know that it was a gift from France. I like that this event in history is told from the perspective of a child because I could really feel how excited she was about Miss Liberty and watching her come into her town. I also think it presents a great lesson for children as well- if they want something bad enough or want to help someone, they need to try to raise money or save their money for it. I also think a great element of this book is the fact that it put the directions in the back to make the crowns that Lily made in the story. I think it would be a great project to do in school after reading the story.
