Ages 25

The Fourth of July is observed with a parade (揊lags unfurl / Batons twirl), a trip to the beach (揅astle moats / Seaweed boats), and sparklers and fireworks in the park (揝tar-flakes spill / Heart朤hump thrill) in these multicultural celebrations that look like twenty-first-century America, even as participants are engaged in timeless activities. Lee Wardlaw抯 playful rhyming text will bring smiles, cleverly describing familiar activities, while Huoy Von Lee抯 collage illustrations make the summer fun look irresistible.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
