This spirited look at our national birthday explores the stories behind the familiar symbols of the Fourth of July and tells how they have come to be associated with the holiday. It will make the fourth of july more meaningful for readers young and old. James Cross Giblin is an editor of children's books who also writes for children. He edited the Clarion holiday series started by the late Edna Barth. Ursula Arndt brings to this book the same delightful style she employed as illustrator of the six Barth holiday books. This title, along with all of Edna Barth's classic holiday books, is now being reissued with a fresh, new jacket design and fun activities inside the paperback covers.
