"A friendly reminder of how America can be at its best." – Entertainment Weekly

If you had to name a statue, any statue, odds are good you'd mention the Statue of Liberty.

Have you seen her?

She's in New York.
She's holding a torch.
And she's in mid-stride, moving forward.
But why?

In this fascinating and fun take on nonfiction for kids, Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris investigate a seemingly small trait of America's most emblematic statue. What they find is about more than history, more than art. What they find in the Statue of Liberty's right foot is the powerful message of acceptance that is essential of an entire country's creation.

An ideal patriotic gift for kids, this book as received accolades from a number of reputable publications:

A Publishers Weekly Best Children's Book of the Year
A School Library Journal Best Picture Book of the Year
A 2018 Orbis Pictus Award Honor Book
A Junior Library Guild selection
