A lady stands in New York Harbor. She is as tall as a skyscraper. She is called the Statue Liberty. "Liberty" means freedom. All over the world, people dreamed of coming to America to find freedom.
People came by ship. The trip took any days. Men, women and children were crowded together. They were tired, hungry, and scared. Suddenly, they saw the lady! They had reached America at last. Now they knew they were free. People cried for joy!
A Frenchman made the lady. His name was Frédéric Bartholdi. He copied his mother's face for his statue. How beautiful she was! 😍❤️🗽
