Reviews
Rappaport uses a literary device that gives the writing a satisfying emotional immediacy...modest voices enlarge the narrative and, at the same time, make it more intimate...Tavares creates images with a pageantlike grandeur.
--New York Times Book Review

Heartfelt...adds up to a stirring reminder of what Lady Liberty stands for.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Large in scale and monumental in effect.
--Booklist (starred review)

A reverent and passionate portrait.
--San Francisco Chronicle

Spectacular picture book...stunning.
