What's Her Right Foot About

Publisher Summary

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 taking one step forward. But why? In this fascinating, fun take on nonfiction, uniquely American in its frank tone and honest look at the literal foundation of our country, 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 to an entire country’s creation. Can you believe that?

I love this book about the statue of liberty! The illustrations are completely gorgeous, and the book is fact-filled and full of great vocabulary. While some of the words might go over the heads of little ones, I really like the diction choice to help introduce new words. The story tells a lot of the history and meaning behind the statue, and I learned a lot of new things from this book, myself. The story starts with the history of the statue, moves towards more facts and details about the building of the statue, and ends with what the statue represents about freedom, liberty, and immigration.
