Overview

THE FOURTH OF JULY FOR KIDS is a short, highly readable tale for young readers aged 6-9. Erica and Justin are visiting their grandfather just before Fourth of July. To them, the holiday means picnics and parades and fireworks.

But Grandpa Ross explains to them what the occasion really means. He gives them a glimpse of the Revolution and the Declaration of Independence. He shows them that rights are something you have to stand up for. He mentions all the men and women who have given their lives so that we can live in a free nation. He introduces them to his friend Manuel, who came here as an immigrant in order to enjoy America’s freedom.

This charming tale give kids a new slant on what the Fourth is all about. It is a well-written, pleasant, sometimes funny story that kids can relate to. It makes a great story for parents (or grandparents) to read to younger kids, too.

    THE REAL DEAL

    This is a great little story to read to young kids. It puts the history of the Fourth in simple terms they can relate to and might be a lesson to adults too. A small classic and my grandkids loved it.
