Light for All

We rated this book:


Lady Liberty, standing tall, welcomes newcomers with her illuminating light and the freedom she represents. People fleeing the ravages of war, starvation, and natural disasters come to her with hopes for a brighter future. They bring their children, praying America will hold true to her promise of acceptance and equality. They’ve been pouring in for generations, trying to camouflage with American culture without losing claim to their roots. Their homelands will always remain a part of them; they tell the stories of who they once were and of what brought them to the land of the free.

Inspiring and written in simple, yet eloquent language, Light for All tells the story of all those who have fled to America in search of a better life. Children and adults of all colors and creeds have come to this land with determination and courage that’s palpable. Youth will be filled with awe while reading and imagining what their journeys must have been like. Educators of early elementary-age students will find this an excellent resource for teaching about immigration, the Statue of Liberty, and the American dream. Additionally, its industrial size makes it perfect for displaying in the classroom or on a coffee table.
