July the 4th
By Mary L. Bushong
  

1     Do you like birthday parties? People have birthdays. Some countries have birthdays too!
 
2     America has a birthday on July 4. She is more than 200 years old.
 
3     Around 400 years ago, people heard about a new land. Some people were unhappy with their king. They wanted to worship God in their own 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.
