Milly and the Macy's Parade
The Macy's Parade is a treasured American pastime. But few people know that the first parade in 1924 was organized by immigrant employees at Macy's eager to incorporate their old-world traditions into their new American heritage.
With facility and flair, Shana Corey tells the fictional story of a Polish immigrant girl who helps envision this grand event. Brett Helquist's expressive, exquisitely detailed paintings are like holiday window displays come to life. Author & artist evoke the glamour & nostalgia of another era as well as the pride of what it means to be American.
