Now the littlest readers can learn about how the Statue of Liberty came to be--and what it means to people all over the world.

In this engaging book, preschoolers will learn the fascinating story behind the creation of the Statue of Liberty. Simple words and bright artwork bring to life the story of the people--a professor, a sculptor, a poet, a newspaperman--who helped establish this famous landmark. Little ones will learn that the torch was created first, in time for America's 100th birthday, and displayed in a park. And they'll gain a clear understanding of what the Statue of Liberty has always meant to people around the world. Fun facts, such as how schoolchildren gave their pennies to help pay for the base of the statue, complete this charming nonfiction Little Golden Book.

Jen Arena
Jen Arena has written over 50 books for kids. When she's not writing, editing, or hanging out at her local bookstore, you might find her driving around Tampa, Florida with the windows down.

Mike Dutton is a children's book illustrator, former Google doodler, and current art director at Tonko House animation studio. When not illustrating, he enjoys going on adventures with his family in a truck camper, which is named Holly Joliday, a spoonerism from their favorite film, Mary Poppins. Holly is over 20 years old, and in the seven years they've owned her, she has only had to visit the garage twice. The camper itself is exactly like Mary Poppins' carpetbag: It somehow fits everything--kitchen, bedroom, mini library, and all four family members at bedtime. When not on the road, they all reside in Berkeley, California.
