It's 1924 and the holidays are approaching. Milly lives in NYC with her Polish family and frolics daily in holiday displays at the Macy's store under the watchful eye of Mr. Macy. But Milly's family misses their homeland and traditions. In an effort to cheer people up, Milly convinces Mr. Macy to combine old country traditions with new American heritage in a celebration for all to enjoy. Everyone agrees that the resulting parade will become a wonderful new tradition. This heartwarming story beautifully captures the creation of a uniquely American event.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is something that unites us all. While we’re sad that things are different for the parade this year, we’re happy that it’s still on! This book has been out for quite awhile–it was Brett Helquist’s debut before he went on to illustrate lots of others, including A Series of Unfortunate Events–but it tells the very interesting story of how the parade came to be. A must read for this time of year.

How excited are you for this book? Tell us about the little one (or not so little one) who will love this. Thanks for ‘mini-swooning’ with us!
