Synopsis: Since her last trip to Mount Rushmore, Little Miss HISTORY has journeyed more than 1700 miles over land, sea and air to reach her second destination, The Statue of Liberty. This national treasure stands proudly in New York Harbor welcoming all people to the land of freedom and opportunity. In this second book of the series, Little Miss HISTORY will help you discover who thought of the statue in the first place, the values she symbolizes, the architects and engineers who built Lady Liberty, and the little known individuals who contributed their pennies to make her debut in New York's harbor possible. You will learn about why she remains a promise and symbol of the hopes and aspirations of many people around the world and not just to immigrants coming to America. Come now and follow Little Miss HISTORY as she enlightens you about The Statue of Liberty!

About the Story: Little Miss History is at it again; this time traveling to the Statue of Liberty to explain facts about: who thought of the idea for the Statue of Liberty and when; who designed it; how funding came about; how the statue was shipped to American; when the statue was erected; what the Statue of Liberty symbolizes along with what the different sections of the statue represents.

What I thought: These are absolutely, positively great books! Kids (and adults) will learn history through key facts presented in a fun way by the author. The vivid full-page color illustrations are fantastic, and the black and white photography enhances the reader's experience on the trip to the Statue of Liberty. I still want to know: why didn't we have these kinds of books when I was a kid? History would have been so much fun!
