July the 4th
By Mary L. Bushong
  

1     Do you like birthday parties? People have birthdays. Some lands have birthdays too!
 
2     America has a birthday. It is on July 4. She is more than 225 years old.
 
3     More than 500 years ago, people heard about a new land. Some people were unhappy where they lived with their king. They wanted to worship God their way. The king said no. He did not let them worship God as they liked. They wanted to go to a new land. They wanted to be free.
 
4     The king did not mind letting them go. He would rule the new land too. It could make him richer.
