Children's author, primary school teacher, long-time editor and three-time Newbery Medal Honoree Alice Dalgliesh tells the story of the Fourth of July in this text-heavy work of picture-book history. With language that is simple but expressive, she relates the tale of how the thirteen American colonies came to want independence from Britain, how their representatives met in Philadelphia, and how the Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson. Then, on July 4th, 1776, the representatives voted to adopt the Declaration, and America declared her independence. The remainder of the narrative describes how the news was carried to the thirteen states, and (briefly) how the war for independence was eventually won...

Wonderfully written by Dalgliesh and beautifully illustrated by Marie Nonnast, The 4th of July Story makes a lovely introduction, both to the significance of America's Independence Day and to the history of the American Revolution, for beginning readers. As mentioned, it is text heavy for a picture-book, and could almost be considered an illustrated short story. Of course, younger children with a longer attention span could also benefit from having this read to them. I appreciated the fact that Dalgliesh gave just enough background information to situate her main story - a narrative explaining the significance of the 4th of July - but didn't get bogged down in lots of details about the related subjects of Colonial America's conflict with Britain, the Continental Congress, and the American Revolution, thereby distracting the reader. As she mentions in her brief author's note, this is a big story, and hopefully readers will investigate other aspects of it as they grow older. Recommended to anyone looking for a children's book addressing the historical significance of the 4th of July. ( )

This book is about the history of America and how our nation began. It is the story of the fourth of July and what we celebrate on that day. This book is great to read to kids to explain to them what the fourth of July is. The book has very realistic photos as well which are great for children so they can imagine the actual events. It also makes the story seem more real. ( )

This is a perfect first reader to introduce American history. The book includes many Revolution War heroes: Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and George Washington. It is a very good basic reader that makes learning the history of Independence Day fun. ( )

An excellent primer to the beginnings of the United States of America. Dalgliesh explains especially well in simple language the transition from colonies to country. Well worth reading in early elementary years.
