Tomorrow is the 4th of July: the day we remember the United States declaring independence from Great Britain way back in 1776! Today, we are going to celebrate by reading Apple Pie 4th of July, written by Janet S. Wong and illustrated by Margaret Chodos-Irvine. In this story, a young girl’s parents prepare Chinese food to serve at the family’s store, but the girl is certain that “Americans do not eat Chinese food on the Fourth of July.” Do you think she’s right about that? Come find out how the girl, her parents, and the whole neighborhood end up celebrating, and after the story, make your own 4th of July fireworks painting!
Please note that this is not a drop-off program—child participants must be accompanied by an adult.
