KIRKUS REVIEW

Paul Galdone's 3 color illustrations and Miss Hill's comprehensive text could not depict a more accurate vicarious excursion to the Statue of Liberty, from this family's automobile ride to Battery Park to the awesome exploration of the Statue. The route to the ferry, the view of the city from its railing, the approach and entrance to the Statue, the winding arduous climb, temptingly invite New York children for an immediate visit. Information pertinent to an appreciation of this wonder of the world is divulged through family conversation. This could certainly initiate a series of further inside visits to the many additional wonders of Manhattan Island.
