Balloons Over Broadway by Melissa Sweet

Tracing the origins of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from 1924, Sweet’s biography of Tony Sarg, the puppeteer who made the parade balloons come to life, will inspire children that work can actually be fun. Winner of the Robert F. Sibert Medal for the best non-fiction book of 2012, Sweet shows the vision and science behind the balloons through multi-media graphics and textured illustrations. “Sweet tells this slice of American history well, conveying both Sarg’s enthusiasm and joy in his work as well as the drama and excitement of the parade. . .This one should float off the shelves.” —School Library Journal, starred review. Ages 4+
