About the Author:

EVE BUNTING first glimpsed the Statue of Liberty when she sailed into New York Harbor as an immigrant from Ireland. She is the author of many books, including the three titles in the Little Badger series and the Caldecott Medal-winning Smoky Night, illustrated by David Diaz. She lives in Southern California.

NANCY CARPENTER has illustrated numerous books for children, including Twinnies, also written by Eve Bunting. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–In Eve Bunting's evocative book (Harcourt, 1999), an extended Italian-American family from New York City has a tradition–every October 28th they go to the Statue of Liberty to celebrate her birthday. Told in the first person from the viewpoint of Tony, the family's young son, the story follows them on their expedition. Charming details, and carefully-chosen words bring the story to life. Tony's grandparents were immigrants, and his grandmother's love of the statue and all that it symbolizes is apparent. Tony is a little embarrassed by his family, but he begins to understand them better when he sees a new immigrant family gazing at the statue that embodies the hopes of their own freedom. This poignant story is touching and expresses the spirit of the statue's purpose. Nancy Carpenter's oil illustrations are scanned iconographically as a young boy reads the text. Original music accompanies the production. This would be a wonderful literary tie-in to units on immigration, the Statue of Liberty, or family heritage.–Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA
