With simple text and excellent illustrations, this book describes our Independence Day holiday and its characteristic colorful flashes of light known as fireworks. The beginning chapter sets the tone and following chapters identify the holiday’s meaning, how the holiday began, and how it is celebrated with fireworks. The history, craft and mechanics of fireworks are also discussed. Safety considerations for fireworks complete this brief, information book. The book is one of a nonfiction series but it may also be read as a story. Each page of text is paired with an appropriate illustration, primarily color photographs. A table of contents, a glossary and an index are included. The book will augment nicely studies of U.S. history and holiday symbols.
