Independence Day is around the corner and if you have been around for a while you know that every holiday is an opportunity to change up my bookshelf. I love to use picture books to teach my kids. Anything from understanding diversity to learning about outer space has lived on our shelf. This time I put together a list of my favorite Fourth of July books for kids.

It was important to me that this list have simple stories for my youngest and also more history for my older two. I also wanted to make sure I included diverse characters since there were so many different people that made our country what it is today. 

This list includes everything from the first president to the statue of liberty. I hope you enjoy them as much as our family does.
