The nonfiction board book The Story Of America’s Birthday by Patricia A. Pingry (illustrated by Meredith Johnson; Candy Cane Press, 2000), is a very basic introduction for young children that explains why we celebrate on July 4th. But even for a basic introduction, the book packs a lot of facts in. It introduces concepts such colonies, taxes from the king, and then the writing of the Declaration of Independence by Jefferson. The illustrations are very child-friendly, and the text is short enough (and in large enough print) that it is easily read-aloud to even a young child.
