Golding, Theresa Martin MEMORIAL DAY SURPRISE. Il. by Alexandra Artigas. ISBN 1-59078-048-5. Honesdale, PA: Boyds Mills Press, 2004. Unp. $15.95. "Is it a really big surprise, Mama?" As Mama and Marco watch the parade, several surprises delight them. But Mama states that the best surprise will be even better than the marching band, the fire engines, or the candy that is tossed to the crowd. Marco cannot imagine what could be better! When he spots Abuelo, his grandfather, leading the war veterans in the parade, however, he agrees that it is the best surprise of all! Colorful illustrations complement the text. Ages 5-8.
