Happy birthday, America! This picture book celebrates patriotism, community, and summertime from the dynamic duo that brought you I'll Hold Your Hand.

We lift our flags high above us in pride, waving stars and stripes with red, white, and blue. It’s America’s birthday, and that means cookouts, parades, and fireworks. When the cookouts are over and the pool gates are closed, families will walk from their houses, parade into town, and look to the stars. Surrounded by neighbors and friends, they will watch the fireworks show in wonder as it glitters and sparkles and paints the sky in celebration of Independence Day!

On the Fourth of July is an energetic picture book from Maggie C. Rudd, with sparkling illustrations by Elisa Chavarri, that serves as a joyous ode to American pride and uplifting traditions in our country.
