Descrizione articolo


Describes the construction of the Statue of Liberty in France, its transportation to New York City, and dedication in 1876.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 5 Although not as thorough as most of the new books on this topic, this book does cover Bartholdi's life and outlines the construction of the statue. The double-page pop-up spreads feature workmen building a wooden skeleton of Lady Liberty's hand, the head and crown as it was being assembled in New York, and a panorama of New York Harbor with the statue dominating as it looked on the dedication day: October 28, 1886. In addition to the pop-ups, there are fold-outs, cut-outs, strings which move parts up and down, and wheels. The scale of the statue is emphasizedeven dramatizedby including human figures in each scene. Some of the moving parts point up the uniqueness of a statue of this size; others have little relation to the statue and seem to have been included simply because they lend themselves to the concept of a moving part. The inclusion of a fold-out train which conveyed the statue from Paris to the port of Rouen seems rather pointless. While this book is intriguing, young researchers will be better served by Fox' The Statue of Liberty (Messner, 1985) and William E. Shapiro's book with the same title (Watts, 1985). Mary J. Shapiro's How They Built the Statue of Liberty (Random, 1985) and the Maestros ' The Story of the Statue of Liberty (Lothrop, 1985) are both as attractive as this title while being more factual and practical than it.
