The Fourth Of July Story (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition) based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This book does a great job of explaining why we celebrate the '4th of July'. It's written in plain and simple language. It gives enough of the story so that you know what's going on. It doesn't go too far into the details so that the kids aren't overwhelmed or bored. I loved that the author mentions that the statue of King George the Third was pulled down when word of the declaration reached George Washington and the troops. If film crews had been around at that time, we would have seen images of this, as we did with Sadam, Lenin, etc.
