Children's Book Review: Fancy Nancy: Our Thanksgiving Banquet
Fancy Nancy: Our Thanksgiving Banquet
Written by Jane O'Connor
Published by: HarperFestival, 2011
This is going to be the best Thanksgiving ever!
There is a gigantic turkey, Grandma's secret stuffing, green beans, and authentic cranberry sauce, the kind that doesn't come out of a can. And desserts? There are almost too many to count.
Join Nancy and her entire family as they celebrate Thanksgiving in this brand-new storybook, complete with more than thirty swanky stickers.
* My 5 year old daughter is a huge Fancy Nancy fan. Unfortunately, I've found that once an author gets children hooked on a character (ex. Fancy Nancy, Pinkalicious) they then churn out way too many books after that, which aren't up to par with the original. Surprisingly, this was one of the better Fancy Nancy books we've read in awhile. It addresses the issue of the "kids" table at Thanksgiving nicely.
