Children's Books For Fourth Of July

With America’s birthday approaching, why not up the fun of the festivities with some great Fourth of July reads? We’ve compiled a list of Fourth of July books for kids that are both educational and entertaining. While Independence Day is a great day to celebrate with fireworks and fun, it’s also important to educate children on what the day is truly all about. Fictional books such as July Jitters and Fireworks at the FBI are packed with compelling Fourth of July adventures while non-fictional books such as Fourth of July Fireworks and Independence Day explain the history behind the holiday and its importance. Do not forget these books can help you succeed in our annual Summer Reading Program!
