The Fourth of July is observed with a parade (“Flags unfurl / Batons twirl”), a trip to the beach (“Castle moats / Seaweed boats”), and sparklers and fireworks in the park (“Star-flakes spill / Heart–Thump thrill”) in these multicultural celebrations that look like twenty-first-century America, even as participants are engaged in timeless activities. Lee Wardlaw’s playful rhyming text will bring smiles, cleverly describing familiar activities, while Huoy Von Lee’s collage illustrations make the summer fun look irresistible. (Ages 2–5)
