Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

To begin with, her coloring is a little on the green side. Not to mention that she grows a few inches every day. Smart, independent, and a friend to all, when Little Miss Liberty outgrows her classmates, her clothes, her house, even her city, she sets out to travel the world. And in the end she finds just the right spot to call her own.
Author-artist Chris Robertson has created a humorous yet uplifting story about one of the world's most symbolic monuments. An enjoyable romp and a perfect read-aloud, it will entertain even the squirmiest listener and yet in its own way remind us why Lady Liberty is both unique and important. 

My Thoughts: 
Little Miss Liberty was unique from the start. She was born a little green and outgrew her classmates and even her parents. She grew so much she realized that she needed to go out into the world to find her rightful place. So she left Paris and ended up in America. 

This is more than just a story about how Little Miss Liberty ended up on Ellis Island. This is the story about a girl with a love of books and confidence in her own skin who was friend to all. She travels the world searching for a place to belong. 

This is a wonderful story with fun and iconic illustrations. It's the perfect addition to any youngsters bookshelves and I'll definitely be adding this empowering picture book to our shelves in the future.
