Reviews - What do customers think about The Statue of Liberty (Step into Reading)?
No more questions Jul 19, 2005
This book not only answered all the questions my 5 year old Davey had, it kept him persuing his determination to "read the big words" as soon as he could. Wonderful, informative reading for all ages.
Great book for young readers Sep 6, 2004
This was a fun and relatively easy read for our 5 year old child. The words are easy enough to read and the illustrations are beautiful. We went to see the statue earlier this year and this book came home with us from the gift shop. It was great to hear our child read it on the ferry boat as we left Liberty Island. It was a welcome gift for our child and will be a source of fond memories. If your child has never seen the statue and you're planning on seeing it, this book would be a nice preview for him/her. If your child has already gone there, this would make for a nice memory builder. It is great for a child about 4-6 years old with an affection for the statue and who is interested in learning to read or build up their early reading skills.
