Bestselling author Mary Pope Osborne takes us through a lively celebration of the Fourth of July in small-town America. Three generations enjoy parades, popcorn, "Yankee Doodle Dandy," and at the end of the day, lightning bugs and fireworks. "Then I blow out the stars, as if they were candles on a giant birthday cake"—a glorious image in Peter Catalanotto's glowing illustrations.
