Corduroy's Fourth of July Book
- By Don Freeman and Lisa McCue
- Board book: 16 pages
Today is the Fourth of July, and Corduroy and his friends are having a fun-filled picnic. They eat tasty treats and play games in the hot summer sun. Then it's time to cool down with a dip in the pool. Next, they take part in an Independence Day parade. Scruffy Pup bangs the drum, Checkerboard Bunny plays the flute, and Corduroy carries the American flag. Once it's dark outside, the friends gather to watch an amazing fireworks display. This sturdy, brightly colored shaped board book is perfect for the youngest fans of Corduroy, one of the best-loved characters in children's books for nearly 40 years.
The home of the original Declaration of Independence, the National Archives celebrates Independence Day every year with a public reading of the Declaration, at which you can come boo the list of grievances against King George III and cheer "Huzzah!" as we declare our independence.
