Emma's Poem - Linda Glaser and Claire A. Nivola

What would the Statue of Liberty say to the hopeful as they entered the United States? Emma Lazarus imagined Lady Liberty’s words in her now famous poem: “The New Colossus.” EMMA’S POEM (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $17) proclaims, “Give me your tired, your poor, / Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” Author Linda Glaser tells the story of Emma’s privileged life and how she became passionate about helping immigrants. Claire A. Nivola’s detailed paintings depict the time just before the Statue of Liberty was erected in New York Harbor. Ages 7-10. HWP
