Lady Liberty: A Biography

Written by Doreen Rappaport; Illustrated by Matt Tavares

The Statue of Liberty is one of the enduring symbols of the United States. She began as a gift from the French as a recognition that liberty for all and a government founded for its people and by its people were important ideals to attain. The path to building Lady Liberty was not smooth. And in the end it took contributions from both the American and French citizens and 20 years to construct Lady Liberty.
