Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-8-Going beyond pat descriptions of symbols, this series digs to the roots of America's garden of emblems. For example, readers not only witness the evolution of the U.S. flag's design over the years, but learn, too, why flags matter in the first place. In addition, children discover that while the Pledge of Allegiance is a cornerstone of American symbolism, pledges to the flag are relatively rare in the rest of the world. Throughout each title, "Vital Figure" sidebars feature key persons. In some instances, the person is well known, such as George Washington. Other times, the subject is less famous but no less important in his or her realm of influence (Alan Freed, unscrupulous but passionate promoter of rock ‘n' roll). The concise, engaging writing is aptly accented by symbols that alert readers to special vocabulary words, ideas for research projects, and sidebars brimming with supplemental insights. While not outstanding, the illustrations are colorful and appropriate. A wide-ranging, appealing, and useful series.α(c) Copyright 2014.

WHEN I SEEN THIS BOOK I JUST SCREAMED. THE SHIP THATS GOING BY THE STATUE OF LIBERTY IS THE S.S. UNITED STATES SHIP. I REMEMBER WAVING AT THE STATUE CAUSE I WAS COMING TO AMERICA. AND WHAT AN AWESOME SITE TO SEE THAT YOU MADE IT THREW THOSE ROUGH WATERS TO FINALLY GREET THE STATUE OF LIBERTY. THIS WAS A PROUD MOMENT IN MY LIFE. GOD BLESS ALL THE PEOPLE WHO MADE HER WORKED ON HER AND TOOK CARE OF HER AND THE ONE HOW DIDNT GET RECONIZED FOR AN OUTSTANDING JOB. THIS BOOK MADE ME CRY GREAT TEARS OF JOY.

Format: Paperback
Barry Moreno has produced a masterful work on the Statue of Liberty with this title in the Images of America line. The word "Images" couldn't be more apt: every page in this compact work contains at least one pictorial nugget to draw the reader to linger there, and the text is replete with the history of the statue. Thank you, Barry, for another major and worthwhile effort to cover America's unique and most precious symbol.

This series is great because it uses pictures to tell a story and more importantly show the emotion of the day as it happen. This is the second book I have purchased in this series and it did not disappoint. It would be a good companion book to other historical texts that at times lack good photos and illustrations.

This is a good book that provided me with a lot of useful information that I was able to incorporate into a construction 101 paper on the Statue of Liberty. I think that this would be a good book for many different grade levels and I felt that it was an interesting read as well.
