Picture Book Basket // July

 Growing up in Washington State, the Fourth of July marked the day that summer weather finally arrived. In my opinion, the Pacific Northwest is the place to be in July. The sunshine is strong and refreshing, the air is clean and clear, and the green landscape is absolutely on display.
