Great Non-Fiction with a Great Message!

This book is a simply amazing must-read for everyone!  I love the message that we must never stand still in our pursuit of freedom!  Who knew about the Statue of Liberty's right foot?  I want to revisit the Statue and see her foot!

My good friend, Patty, gave me a gift card to a brand new, independent book store Whitelam Books in Reading, Massachusetts, and this is the great book I chose!

My forever resolution includes reading more non-fiction read-alouds to my students.  Do you have any reading resolutions?  Please let me know in the comments ~ I'd love to hear them!

  1. Well, you know I shared Baabwaa & Wooliam today too, a fun book. I still need to read Her Right Foot & loved This Is How We Do It! Happy New Year!

  2. Her Right Foot has been on my list for a bit, but haven't read it yet. As far as children's literature I don't read enough nonfiction. Great resolution.

  4. This Is How We Do It was a real favorite of mine from last year, too. A great example of nonfiction that's both informative and fascinating!
