  • Page 2 - Another picture illustration
  • Page 3 - "The Big Parade" was created especially for Michael Jeremy Smith at the age of 8, with love from Mom and Dad, November 9, 1999
  • Page 4 - Mike Smith sat up wide awake in his bed.  The sun was just coming up in Atlanta.  He could tell that it was going to be a gorgeous day.  He glanced out his bedroom window.  Mike remembered exactly where he was planning to go today with Larry, Wayne and Ann.
  • Page 5 - Picture illustrations
  • Page 6 - More picture illustrations
  • Page 7 - Mike had been so excited for the past week.  With Larry, Wayne and Ann, he had made a game of finding the most circus posters all over town.  Today was the big parade and that meant the start of all the circus activities.  Mike had even tried to go to sleep as fast as he could last night to make the morning come more quickly.
  • Page 8 - Mike began to think about all the fantastic fun he would have.  Last year, his favorite act was the clown with the invisible dog.  Mike wondered if the clown would be there again today.   Then Mike thought about the child who would be selected by the mayor this year to lead the parade.  Who would that lucky person be?
  • Page 9 - Picture illustrations
  • Page 10- More picture illustrations
  • Page 11 - Just then the phone rang.   "Mike Smith, will you lead the big parade for us this year?" asked the mayor of Atlanta.  "Oh, yes, yes!" exclaimed Mike.   "Will I get to ride in the fire truck?"  The mayor chuckled, "You most certainly will, Mike!"
  • Page 12 - Larry, Wayne and Ann waited with Mike while a huge helicopter landed in his back yard.  It was there to pick up Mike.   The helicopter took off minutes later with Mike in the front seat grinning from ear to ear.  After waving goodbye, Larry, Wayne and Ann hurried downtown to see the parade.
  • Page 13 - Picture illustration
  • Page 14 - Another picture illustration
  • Page 15 - From the helicopter, Mike could see the circus parade beginning to assemble at the edge of town.  The helicopter landed and Mike ran to the mayor.  On their way to the shiny, red fire truck at the head of the parade, they walked past all the practicing performers and anxious animals that would be following MikeMike was thrilled.
  • Page 16 - Someone shouted, "Look, Mike Smith is leading the parade this year!"  At that very moment, a big drum roll was heard.  Mike carefully climbed aboard the fire truck next to the driver who was dressed like a clown.  Mike enjoyed the marvelous, marching music played by the band as the fire truck drove down the main street of Atlanta.
  • Page 17 - Picture illustration
  • Page 18 - Another picture illustration.
  • Page 19 - Immediately behind the band was a beautiful bareback rider.  Her two magnificent, prancing horses were so well trained that the rider could balance on both their backs while standing up.  Mike imagined that the fine, fancy feathers on the noble horses' heads were bobbing to the beat of the music.  He bobbed his head also.
  • Page 20 - The fire truck turned a corner.   Mike saw three small children mimicking the dancing bear who was dressed in a pink ballerina costume.  The big, brown bear was very entertaining as she proudly performed bouncy ballet steps while balancing on a ball.
  • Page 21 - Picture illustrations
  • Page 22 - More picture illustrations
  • Page 23 - The circus elephants followed next.   As he watched the playful pranks of the darling baby elephant, Mike daydreamed about taking him home.  When the elephant fanned his big floppy ears, Mike could almost picture him flying through the sky with the greatest of ease.  If the baby strayed too far, the mother elephant would lovingly wrap her trunk around his.
  • Page 24 - A jolly juggler on a unicycle juggling five full bottles fascinated Larry, Wayne and Ann.  He pedaled so fast that there were times when it was hard to keep up with him.  It was incredible that he never dropped a bottle, no matter how fast he pedaled. Larry, Wayne and Ann knew it took practice to be that good.
  • Page 25 - Picture illustrations
  • Page 26 - More picture illustrations
  • Page 27 - Mike was amused by the antics of the slippery seal.  The seal would flip the ball backwards and then, with his hind flippers, smack it right back to the tip of the nose.  Everyone loved watching the seal clap after each trick he performed. Larry, Wayne and Ann had fun imitating his funny, barking noises.
  • Page 28 - The acrobatic troupe was next.   Their tumbling and flipping routines had the crowd cheering.  Mike was enjoying his place of honor, but was really tickled when the driver told him he would have a chance to watch the entire parade pass before him as each act entered the big top circus tent.
  • Page 29 - Picture illustrations
  • Page 30 - More picture illustrations
  • Page 31-  A majestic lion with all his marvelous mane was in the last wagon.  He was so-o-o-o big, and his roar was so-o-o-o loud that Mike could hear him from the very front of the parade.  The mild-mannered monkeys on top of his cage did not seem at all frightened of the ferocious feline.
  • Page 32 - The fire truck stopped at the entrance of the big top circus tent.  Mike talked to the circus stars as they went inside.  It made him feel like an important star to be so close to them.   Then Mike joined Larry, Wayne and Ann in his special section inside the tent.
  • Page 33 - Picture illustration
  • page 34 - Another picture illustration
  • Page 35 - When the circus was over, Mike was escorted outside by the mayor and the ringmaster.  Mike did not want this special day to end.  As he turned to look one last time, some performers were waving goodbye.  Mike waved back and smiled, for he knew he would never forget the day he led THE BIG PARADE!
  • Page 36 - Has the child's name and a list of 7 names of characters found in the book and they are to be unscrambled by the child who will own the book.
