Pippa loves the parade. The band is marching. The drummers are drumming. The gymnasts are turning cartwheels down the street. There are prizes to win and cotton candy to eat. It's a big parade and an even bigger day for Pippa. After the fireworks light the evening sky, Pippa finds that her father's shoulder is a good place to take a nap. A colorful parade pops from the pages of this picture book in rhyme that's a perfect choice for preschoolers.
