Classic July 4th Books for Children

Berry Trifles, Patriotic Movies & Books, and Sales – July 4th at Home!

Classic Children's Books

Happy Independence Day! I hope you and your family are having a wonderful holiday celebrating our nation’s founding. We are at home this year, enjoying things like biking to view the houses in our neighborhood yard decorating contest, cooking Southern summer favorites and shopping a few of the July 4th sales.  

Nothing like a vegetable plate with homemade cornbread in the summer! Just like my grandmother made.
If you have good tomatoes, must make BLTs!

Yesterday my daughter and I made a patriotic trifle to watch Hamilton and today I think we are going to make these hydrangea cupcakes in blue. We also might watch 1776 again. It’s the original musical about our nation’s founding and available on Amazon Prime. (A DoSayGive reader told me it’s her family’s tradition to watch annually on July 4th!)

My little Yankee Doodle in Grace and James loungewear. 

One of my favorite ways to teach my girls about our country’s heritage is though books. If you want to dive into more history with your children you may want to check out some of the classic books we’ve gathered below. 

And if you are wanting to shop the great sales be sure to browse our full sale roundup which we keep updating with great sales! Shop the sales here. And home sales here
