A friendly reminder of how America can be at its best. - Entertainment Weekly

If you had to name a statue, any statue, odds are good youd mention the Statue of Liberty.

Have you seen her?

Shes in New York.
Shes holding a torch.
And shes in mid-stride, moving forward.
But why?

In this fascinating and fun take on nonfiction for kids, Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris investigate a seemingly small trait of Americas most emblematic statue. What they find is about more than history, more than art. What they find in the Statue of Libertys right foot is the powerful message of acceptance that is essential of an entire countrys creation.

A Publishers Weekly Best Childrens Book of the Year
A School Library Journal Best Picture Book of the Year
A 2018 Orbis Pictus Award Honor Book
A Junior Library Guild selection
