vintage (1950s, 1960s, 1970s maybe?) picture book about a children's parade

I am trying to figure out the title of one of my favorite picture books as a child. I have a feeling it was a bit older, left over from when my dad and his siblings were kids--so 1950s to 1970s maybe?

It was a picture about about a children's parade maybe at a preschool. I think the main character was named Martha (there also may have been a Georgie... that or presidential history is clouding the memory). The kids were drawn realistically, not like cartoons. They marched around and played their instruments and rode tricycles. 

I feel like the title may have been something like "A Parade for Martha," but my searches so far have been fruitless.
