Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689828640, Hardcover)

"He was gallant, he was regal,

Did you see that eagle,

Eyes, canary diamonds in the sun?"

On the Fourth of July, as the tall ships sail into the harbor to commemorate our country's independence, a lone bald eagle comes to rest atop a bridge that spans the bay. This eagle -- a symbol of our freedom come to life -- soars on high as a mighty witness to America's celebration.

Based on a patriotic song written by Betty Paraskevas, with the score included, On the Day the Tall Ships Sailed features bold watercolor paintings by Michael Paraskevas in a glorious new style.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 17:58:03 -0400)

Jesse Bear experiences the sights, smells, sounds, and activities of Christmas, from decorations and gifts to baking and caroling.
