“She must meet them in the sea.“
My favorite part about this book were the illustrations!
Her right foot by Dave Eggers was a fabulous read! It is a factual book about the Statue of Liberty. She's in New York. She's holding a torch. And she's in mid-stride, moving forward. But why? In this fascinating, nonfiction, the author investigates a small trait of America's most famous statue. What they find in the Statue of Liberty's right foot is the message of acceptance that is essential to an entire country's creation. Very interesting.
Published in 2017, the children's nonfiction book tells the amazing upbringing of an iconic American landmark- the statue of liberty. This is a really great way to tell the history of the statue to the children, with beautiful illustrations and told in a simple manner. Really great for the younger children in your classroom. A great way to introduce vocabulary like immigration and oppression too.
This is best book! Perfect for children (and adults). I learned a ton about the Statue of Liberty that I‘d never heard. It‘s engaging and fascinating and inspiring. It also reminds us of our nation‘s history as a welcoming place for immigrants from all over the world. Just beautiful. Get it for all the children in your life.
5⭐️ Leave it to Eggers to tell a wonderful story! There was a lot I didn‘t know about Lady Liberty. Perfect timing too, it‘s a good dose of xenophobia immunization.

@Kaye I received your book mark and card and they are lovely. I love 3D bookmarks. And it matches the book I tagged!
I love the way Eggers is talking to his intended audience! My daughter (9) enjoyed every bit of this book.
“Your friends and teachers will be astounded. They will be impressed. They might think you are fibbing.”
I finished this fun but interesting #childrens #nonfiction book today about the Statue of Liberty. I liked the #history and asp found the theory about her foot intriguing. On an odd note, I read a short story not too long ago about the Statue of Liberty taking a walk through NYC.
This is an amazing book! It tells the story of the #StatueofLiberty through short text and brightly colored illustrations. Most importantly, it reinforces the idea of the US as a nation that welcomes immigrants. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #PictureBooks #BackgroundKnowledge
5⭐️Yes the book is heavy on the history of Lady Liberty but it does so with cheek and sass. the story changes halfway to focus specifically on her right foot, and how she is preparing to walk away. where is she walking? To welcome new people to this land. The story focuses on her symbolism a friend to immigrants. A fantastic book that is the perfect lesson on who this country was and what our forefathers believed.
