This is one small town parade readers shouldn't miss! It starts with music and drums. What will come next? Cowboys on horseback? The baseball team? The fire engine? Or Miss Eelgrass with the green hair? And when the parade's over and the streets start to clear, another spectacle is waiting up in the sky.

I picked this one up because it was sitting next to something I wanted at the library and I thought, "Why not?" I don't see a lot of books about Independence Day and this was just light and easy to read that might be good for fun on the holiday. It has a recurring scaffold at the beginning that begins to change slightly as you move through the story. Nice book for young audiences.
This is a big hit with Connie thanks to the motorcycles.

Hats off for the Fourth of July is a book that could be used to introduce the national holiday. Students could learn about what a 4th of July parade is like and what happens when it is over, which is fireworks. Teachers could also use this book to teach students about sequence of events and historical fiction, as it relates to the real life national holiday.
Both of my storytime groups loved it!
