Statue of Liberty, New York City

If your children anything like mine they know much about the Statue of Liberty. They've seen it on the screen - movies, television programs and video games. They're read about it in books. They've learned lots about the Statue of Liberty in school. Kids know that Liberty is a lady, that the French sculptor Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi designed it, that it was a gift of friendship from France, and that Lady Liberty is an icon of freedom. They know that each of her features, from the broken chains at her feet to the seven rays of her crown, has a special meaning. They even know the source of her green color. So why take the children? There's nothing kids like better than touring a site they know lots about.
