Paper Parade by Sarah Weeks
There is a parade today and the little girl in this story desperately wants to go but her brother is ready for a nap and she is denied the pleasure of going to the parade. She contents herself with seeing the parade from her window, which inspires her to create her own paper parade. Crafting a mobile for her brother so that he too might enjoy the parade provides the girl much pleasure. The words sound like music, making a parade with words.
