"An exuberant, old-time-y celebration of the Fourth of July." --Kirkus Reviews "It's hard to imagine a more joyous, kid-friendly celebration of the fabulous fourth than this. . . . the exuberant text and the pencil, ink, watercolor, and gouache artwork, full of movement and delight, will encourage kids to find out what's happening in their local celebrations." --Booklist "Day's slice-of-life watercolors effortlessly shift focus from the boy to big crowd scenes and back again, always capturing the joy that comes from being both footloose and part of something bigger." --Publishers Weekly
