Naming Liberty


Naming Liberty
by Jane Yolen
illustrated by Jim Burke

A beautifully illustrated picture book with two parallel stories--one of a Russian-Jewish family emigrating to America and the other about French artist Frederic Bartholdi as he creates the Statue of Liberty.

I'm sorry to say we have not have a chance to look at this book recently, so our review will be pretty short right now. We wanted to make sure you know about this book in the meantime -- which is why we made this review page a little prematurely. We promise to look at this book again soon, and write a full review at that time. Please check back soon.

Booklist called this book "an ideal choice for introducing...immigration and liberty."
