The Fourth of July is a wonderful time to teach your toddler more about what it means to be patriotic. These six board books break down big ideas into bite-sized pieces of toddler friendly information. We shouldn't expect our youngest children to be ready for Jeopardy after reading these books but they will help explain what we are celebrating, and set the stage for a deeper connection to their country. You can even pack a few to read while you sit on the curb waiting for the parade to start!
