Sometimes books intended for children can make you see things in a way that your adult mind knows but just can’t seem to focus on. Such is the case with the wonderful Her Right Foot by Dave Eggers (writer) and Shawn Harris (illustrator). This colorfully illustrated book focuses on one of America’s greatest and most iconic symbols, the Statue of Liberty, and, well, her right foot. The result is a wonderfully observed love letter to Lady Liberty and our great country.

About Her Right Foot by Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris:

“In this fascinating, fun take on nonfiction, Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris investigate a seemingly small trait of America’s most emblematic statue. What they find is about more than history, more than art. What they find in the Statue of Liberty’s right foot is the powerful message of acceptance that is essential to an entire country’s creation.”

In these divisive times it is great to have reminders of what binds us together – by exploring Miss Liberty’s right foot, this book does just that and becomes an instant American classic.

Her Right Foot by Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris is available from Amazon and other fine booksellers everywhere.
