This holiday picture book follows a toddler as she experiences the festive sights and sounds of a Fourth of July celebration. From a kid’s-eye view, the opening spread shows a toddler clinging to Dad’s trousers in a row of legs, waiting for the parade. Bursting with movement, the spirited and free-flowing watercolors capture cartwheeling gymnasts and marching scout troups; simple line strokes convey toes tapping and horns blaring. -- Booklist
