The 4th of July is fast approaching! As families scramble to come up with creative ideas of their yearly Independence Day picnic, I’d like to offer up some suggestions that incorporate two of my favorite things; books and activities! So for the last week I’ve been scouring the WWW and here are some holiday winners. Enjoy!

No matter whom you are with, what your traditions are and how you do it, there are many ways to enjoy this grand holiday. Just look for fun ways to share the day with family and friends. Never forget that music, good food and lots of laughs with friends is the best way to spend the day outdoors waiting for the fireworks to light up the sky. Enjoy!
