Little Miss History Travels to the Statue of Liberty by Barbara Ann Mojica is extremely special. Barbara is a good friend to this website and I’m so honored and thrilled to share her latest release here. I learned so many things about the Statue of Liberty that I didn’t know before. Let’s journey into the pages of this really fun read.

Even as a student who has gone through a year of Advanced Placement American History I learned all sort of interesting factoids while reading this book. For instance, I did not know that the rays on her headband represented the seven continents. I thought that only Laboulaye worked on the Statue, not three other Frenchmen AND an American. What I’m wondering is how they took the statue apart?

That seems like a miraculous deed. This fun story provides interesting facts that delve deeper into the history of our Lady Liberty. Not only are the illustrations beautiful and creative, but they also incorporate actual images of the places discussed. She even includes Anna Lazarus’s poem displayed at the base of the Statue of Liberty.

 Extra Facts:
 
  • The French made two smaller replicas of the statue; one in the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris and the other on an island in the Seine river. They look toward the Atlantic Ocean, towards their big sister. There is a third replica in the hometown of Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, Colmar as well.
