Dr. Baldwin's Thoughts on Thursday - January 11, 2018

Dave Eggers' picture book Her Right Foot is an interesting take on the Statue of Liberty and the notion of diversity and acceptance within the United States. Enjoy a video read aloud of the text.

Her Right Foot by Dave Eggers - A Read Aloud

Brief synopsis:
"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."
