Picnics! Singing! Fireworks! It's time to celebrate the best day of all--the Fourth of July!
Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli and award-winning illustrator Larry Day join forces to celebrate America's birthday, the Fourth of July.
A responsible little boy who's eager to do his part wakes up joyful and ready to celebrate his favorite day of all. But there's a lot of work to do--pies to be baked, deviled eggs to be filled--and the boy has lots of jobs to complete before he can enjoy the fun . . . the world's best picnic! Face painting! A band concert!
And then, after what seems like the longest wait ever . . . he can kick back and enjoy the fireworks with the rest of the country.
This delicious and spirited book celebrates small town America and is full of nostalgia for times gone by, yet absolutely of the moment.--from the publisher
