ISBN: 9780735230828

America 's most iconic national symbol was a gift from France to the United States --provided America raised the money for the pedestal on which it was to stand. Urged on by the publisher Joseph Pulitzer, it was raised, largely with the help of children, in the first example of a crowd sourced fundraising campaign. This book tells the story of the best gift ever: how it was designed, created, transported, and then finally erected on its pedestal in the entrance to New York Harbor. Readable text is enhanced with illustrations chock full of historical detail in Bob Byrd 's light-hearted, witty style.

Statue of Liberty measurements. Time line. Further information about the statue and the historical figures mentioned in the book, with photographs. Author 's note. Bibliography. Full-color illustrations were created using ink-line, watercolor, and colored inks.
