" Will buy for our collection because there aren't too many 4 the of July books out there. " said.

" I loved this book. The colorful pictures and the description of the 4th of July celebration is spot on!! Now I'm looking forward to July 4th! " said.

" The timeless tale of a young boy and his family celebrating his favorite day, Independence Day, by watching a parade, having a picnic, and enjoying fireworks. The watercolors do a great job at capturing the joy of this national holiday and all of the fun one can experience.Reviewer 5 " said.

"My Fourth of July is too frantic to be enjoyable. So many exclamation points!!! So much rushing around! So much shouting! So many commands to Hurry! Hurry!

Spinelli's book follows a young boy celebrating the Fourth of July, from his excitable morning of parades and flags and cymbals all the way to the "thump in the dark" of fireworks illuminating the night sky. It's a full picture of how one loving family celebrates this particular holiday, but the onslaught of activities is wearisome and hyperactive, with the young boy jumping from one activity to the next, to the next, to the next, to the next until he's watching fireworks and screaming with joy.

By the end, the young boy is exhausted, and the illustrations of him falling asleep in his wagon on the ride home feel like a rendition of how fatigued one feels after reading this book.

"Wait!" I shout. "Don't forget the pie!"

(I'm in charge of not forgetting.)

Finally . . . out the door!

Mama hands me a banana. I'm so excited I forgot to eat breakfast. [. . .]

Down the path by the creek to the park.
"Hurry! Hurry!"
I grab the pickle jar and run ahead.
I plunk it on an empty table.
It's ours!

I can't wait. I beg for the surprise.

Mama sighs. "Oh, okay - go ahead."*
