It begins in 1865 as a romantic idea, but ten years later Édouard Laboulaye’s dream catches fire. Sculptor Auguste Bartholdi gives the dream the form of a lady, holding a torch to “enlighten the world.” Engineers, plasterers, carpenters, and coppersmiths work together to turn the lady into a monument more than 100 feet tall. Doreen Rappaport’s poetic vignettes and Matt Tavares’s magnificent images remind us of the origins of a national symbol—and show that it took a lot of people to make the Lady.

When my son was in elementary, he told me he wanted to learn about the Statue of Liberty. We found this book, Lady Liberty: A Biography by Doreen Rappaport, at the library, and he was off!

I created this lapbook for him to document (and review) the wealth of beautifully written information found inside the book, Lady Liberty: A Biography.

I hope you enjoy this Statue of Liberty lapbook with your student.
