Brief Annotation: This story is about the unveiling of the Statue of Liberty in New York. Liberty is written through the eyes of the little boy that was assigned to give the sculptor a signal.

Genre: Historical Fiction

Grade Level: 1-2

Readers who will like this: Students that are interested in history, students who like New York

Rating/Response: 4, I really like this story because it teaches us about a very important and well known statue in the United States. I think it’s important that young students are exposed to books like this.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: Can you tell me about the Statue of Liberty? What does it look like?
