An excellent book about the building and naming of the statue of liberty written with parallel stories of the statue creators and a family immigrating to find their liberty. Exceptionally told with beautiful illustrations, the essence of Liberty's purpose is captured and shared along with the message of the importance of a name. Wonderful learning tool of historical happenings between France and the US and other countries.
