Balloons Over Broadway

This was a really cool little book about Tony Sarg and his "upside down marionettes"-- the balloons of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
I loved the illustrations and thought the text was the perfect length to engage younger elementary kids.
Boo says: It was cool. The marionettes for kids were her favorite thing.
