Book Review | Naming Liberty
by Jane Yolen

Score: 4

This is a book with two stories told side-by-side. On one side is the story of the immigrant experience and on the other the story of the creation of the Statue of Liberty. The text is simple, yet descriptive. The illustrations detailed, intense and warm. The author based the story on family members’ experiences of coming to America which she describes in the back og the book. Overall a wonderful addition to the American Jewish Experience section of any Jewish library.

I highly recommend this book for all Jewish libraries.

Grade Level: 3rd-6th
