He took off with a long yammer about fireworks: "purple fireworks..." "Orange fireworks..." On an on he went. Neither I nor his mother could shut that kid up...but we really didn't want to. It was too-ooo cute and spontaneous.
You see, his mother had taken him to the park the previous night to view the Fourth of July festivities and this was the first year he got really excited about the fireworks.
Well, when I saw him that happy, since he would have no use for fireworks, I thought a book with those colorful, bursting sky displays would be just the thing! I searched on Amazon and came up with this charming book. I chose it because of the fireworks on the cover and because it had all the "trimmings" of a family Independence Day celebration: flags, a parade, picnic, baseball game, etc. Besides all of that, it also has a full-page picture of a real firetruck! How could I resist?
When it arrived, his mother read the rhymed text to him in sing-song fashion and said he giggled all the way through; his eyes were as big as saucers as he ogled the pictures, pointing to everything in the book. As we knew he would, he exclaimed loudly over the fireworks, his little body animated with pleasure.
I'm very pleased with this purchase and the rapid delivery; it arrived in their mailbox only two days after I ordered it. My only regret is that I couldn't be there to see his reaction. These little mice, the illustrator of the colorful drawings and the author get five stars. I'd give them more, if I could.
Go and buy yourself the hardcopy, you will appreciate it so much more.
