Eggers, Dave

Her Right Foot

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Shawn Harris. Eggers outlines the Statue of Liberty's history, leading to his well-made and worthy point about her right foot, poised to take a step: "the Statue of Liberty is an immigrant, too. And this is why she's moving." Arch posturings and twee asides surround interesting construction facts and heartfelt thoughts about the statue's meaning. Construction-paper collages aren't always stylistically coherent, but individual illustrations are frequently arresting. Reading list.
