Spacious Skies, Amber Waves, and Fireworks!


The Fourth of July holiday is coming up, and the library recommends celebrating the Fourth with these titles.

America the Beautiful by Katherine Lee Bates; illus. by Neil Waldman; JF B

Before it became a treasured song, “America the Beautiful,” was a poem written by poet Katherine Lee Bates. Her poem reminds us of the beauty of our country.

Red, White, and Boom! By Lee Wardlaw; illus. by Huy Voun Lee; JF W

Beginning with a Fourth of July parade and ending just after the fireworks show, this picture book describes a typical Fourth of July day. The artist uses cut paper to illustrate the celebratory day.
