Lady Liberty’s Holiday by Jen Arena; illustrated by Matt Hunt

In Jen Arena’s new picture book, Lady Liberty’s blue. After 100 years standing in New York Harbor, her arms ache, her neck hurts, and she’s got a cramp in her leg.

Moe the Pigeon recommends a vacation, so off she goes to a variety of places, including the Jersey Shore, St. Louis Arch, and Grand Canyon, to look for America.

Tension rises, however, as the Fourth of July approaches-will Lady Liberty get back in time for the party?

Colorful, comical illustrations offer hilarious “armchair sightseeing” as she races home.

This light-hearted picture book will make you smile, especially at election time, and help you teach U.S. geography to kids.
