pippaRemember what it felt like the first time you went to a parade? This picture book captures the wide-eyed wonder of a parade from a child’s perspective.  Roosa’s text is simple yet rhythmic, following the movement and rat-a-tat sounds of a marching band. Local illustrator Fortenberry combines muted backgrounds with beautiful swirls of vibrant color, perfectly conveying the thrill of trumpets flaring, gymnasts flipping and fireworks bursting.  The charming illustrations create warmth and excitement, and express Pippa’s sheer joy.  Just right for a parade storytime.
