Lady Liberty- A Biography is just what it says, the story of the Lady from the time that she was first conceived, up to her completion and beyond, in the experiences of those that first saw her upon their arrival in the United States.

We start with Edouard de Laboulaye, a French professor of law in 1865, through the work of the sculptor Auguste Bartholdi, the engineer Gustave Eiffel, the poet Emma Lazarus and a number more. Some are very famous and some are surely unknown to us, but moving nevertheless. Those that dug the holes and those that gave their pennies...and their chickens...to see her completed. The story is told from the view point of 10 individuals who were involved with the Lady's construction, most stories spanning a two page spread, the text written in a narrow column, almost like poetry, and the rest taken up by the very beautiful illustrations of Matt Tavares.

A wonderful introduction to the Statue of Liberty for kids...but you adults will enjoy it as well, I promise.

Through lush illustrations and poems that are both informational and touching, the story of Lady Liberty unfolds. The design of the gift, it's infamous welcome, its journey and impact on new arrivals to America are portrayed in double page spreads via this picture book.

What a wonderful addition to a classroom setting for any age, and a lovely welcome to the US gift.
