"Doesn't everyone love a parade? Denish and Franco capture the joyful chaos of long-standing parades like Thanksgiving, Chinese New Year, and Fourth of July as well as more recent or localized parades such as Pride Mardi Gras or the celebration of a sports championship. Vibrant, full-bleed illustrations show a diverse, multigenerational community participating in and enjoying each parade. Four lines of rhyming text describe each parade's distinctive sights and sounds. A festive celebration of America's more-common parades." — Kirkus Reviews

"In aptly festive fashion, bright, busy art and lively rhymes combine to present an array of parades. The page-filling illustrations invite scrutiny and animatedly capture various parade components as well as the delight and excitement they inspire; celebration themes, along with diverse kids and adults participating in and watching the show, provide a welcome, inclusive approach. Endnotes give some background on parades in general and the specific ones highlighted." — Booklist
