The Fourth of July is America's biggest holiday – there are parades, music, picnics, parties, AND fireworks!

We are a nation of immigrants and on this day we all come together to honor the diverseness of our land and to mark the birth of our nation.

These three picture books are a great way to share with little ones the meaning (and fun!) of Independence day:

Blue Sky White Stars by Sarvinder Naberhaus; illustrated by Kadir Nelson
A stirring poetic tribute to the beauty and wonder of America's symbols, history, and landscape.

I Pledge Allegiance by Pat Mora and Libby Martinez; illustrations by Patrice Barton
Libby and her great-aunt, Lobo, both learn the Pledge of Allegiance—Libby for school and Lobo for her U.S. citizenship ceremony.

Red, White, and Boom by Lee Wardlaw; illustrated by Huy Voun Lee
Parades, beach picnics, and fireworks in the park are some of the ways Americans celebrate the Fourth of July.
