From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8-These concise and accessible titles explore the creation and importance of two U.S. symbols. Hahn tells the story of Mount Rushmore by focusing on the artist, Gutzon Borglum, and his 14-year struggle to create the monument with on-again, off-again funding. Marcovitz traces the history of the Liberty Bell, noting the supposition, rumors, and scientific study used to identify the cause of the large crack. Both books have thorough chronologies; they are especially important since the texts are not strictly linear. Captioned, full-color photographs and paintings give students a visual history of each symbol. Well suited for schools, these volumes offer fodder for reports.
