Inspired by her daughter, this tale of love of country and the importance of freedom takes the reader on a little girl’s adventure inside the U.S. Capitol where she learns lessons about patriotism, courage and her immigrant father’s journey to become a proud U.S. Citizen. Little Paloma is not happy when her dad drags the family to America's capital to celebrate becoming an American citizen. "What's the big deal about becoming an American?" Paloma grumbles. But by the end of her whirlwind day—after she gets lost in the Capitol Building and becomes starstruck by the gleaming statue of Lady Freedom—Paloma is filled with great awe and love for the nation her family calls home. "Paloma Wants to be Lady Freedom" is a bold, uniting story of a shy first generation immigrant who finds her voice when she realizes why her father is so proud to become an American citizen.
"You know, there aren’t enough children’s books that celebrate what unites us as Americans. So I decided to write the book I wanted my kids to read. I hope you enjoy sharing it with your favorite child as I enjoyed writing it!" -Rachel Campos-Duffy
