PreS-Gr. 1. As Jenny rides her bike through town on the Fourth of July, she sees the townsfolk preparing for the parade, fishing, showing off newly acquired citizenship papers, and enjoying a picnic. The mayor gives her speech, and the parade begins: "Let the celebration start! / Everybody plays a part." Jenny ends her day in the park watching fireworks with her parents. The rhyming text and Cote's bright art capture the friendly mood. The activities of some of the families seem contrived, particularly an Indian family shown standing together on their lawn with their citizenship papers in hand. But, as a whole, the book shows a diverse community celebrating together. Information about the first Fourth of July, the first U.S. flag, the national bird, and the Liberty Bell is appended.
