Apple Pie 4th Of July

Apple Pie 4th Of July

by Janet S. Wong Illustrated by Margaret Chodos-Irvine
Shocked that her parents are cooking Chinese food to sell in the family store on this all-American holiday, a feisty Chinese-American girl tries to tell her mother and father how things really are. But as the parade passes by and fireworks light the sky, she learns a lesson of her own. This award-winning author-illustrator team returns with a lighthearted look at the very American experience of mixed cultures.
