Back of Book:
The Statue of Liberty is feeling a little blue, despite being green. As much as she loves welcoming people to America, standing still for over a hundred years has left her with a stiff neck, aching arms, and a cramp in her leg. This lady could use a vacation!
With some encouragement from her friend Moe the pigeon, Lady Liberty takes off to see the rest of America! She explores the sandy beaches of Cape Cod, the waving wheat fields of Kansas, the breathtaking grandeur of the Grand Canyon, and the cozy sunshine of the California coastline. But will Lady Liberty make it back to New York City for the Fourth of July? And will she even want to?
This is a fun story to read around the 4th of July. The Statue of Liberty decides she has been in one place for too long. She decides to go visit the United States. I loved that each place the statue visited was a famous landmark. This book shows children small snapshots of the famous and beautiful places around the United States. The ending I sweet and creates a no place like home feel.
