A good book that is close to a great book for children regarding Independence Day in the United States. Wonderful pictures and includes history as well as popular ways to celebrate our country. Includes the Declaration of Independence as part of the story rather than just talking about fireworks as so many children's books do.
My only disappointment in this book is in the back, under the heading of "Just the Facts". For "What:" Independence day is defined as "a cheerful holiday that emphasizes freedom, equality, patriotism, and togetherness", all true and good descriptives of the day and what it feels like and looks like. However, not a great definition of what it actually is: a day to commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Independence, what that meant, who were the heros who signed, why they signed and why Independence was declared. Must teach our children the full meaning. Since Constitution Day is not usually observed by many Independence Day is also becoming a day to review that foundational document as well.
Would still recommend the book as mostly good, just somewhat incomplete in glossary definitions.
