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?

Beautiful, full of interesting facts imparted in an interesting way and maybe most importantly, thought provoking. Also recommend Eggers' other children's book, "This Bridge Will Not Be Gray".

Done really well, I enjoyed reading it as much as my 5 year old did. It is interesting without being boring and inspires you to want to see the statue.

Did you know the name of the boat that transported the pieces of the Statue of Liberty was called the Isère? Did you know that the Statue of Libery was brown for about thirty five years? What about her right foot? Did you notice anything unique about it?

I learned so many interesting facts about the Statue of Liberty that I never knew before! I'm more excited than ever to see her in person.
