The Story of the Statue of Liberty

Betsy Maestro, Author, Giulio Maestro, Illustrator Lothrop, Lee and Shepard Books $13 (0p) ISBN 978-0-688-05773-2
The Maestros have once again produced a winner. Unlike most of the season's Statue of Liberty offerings, this one's a picture book, and it's a fascinating look at America's most famous statue. Lively, informational text and detailed, watercolor paintings provide a clear introduction to the history of the statue and its meaning to France, America and to America's immigrants. The book can be read to younger children, while new readers can easily tackle the simple text on their own. For the child who might have more questions, a well-organized appendix full of information is included. The Story of the Statue of Liberty is among the best of a bumper crop. (38)
