November 27th, 2011

Mom and I are really enjoying picking out books from our collection to show you. Mom loves children's books, and has quite the collection.

This time, Foster is here to help me show you Just Plain Fancy, by a lady named Patricia Polacco. She has written lots of books, but this is Mom's favorite.

This book is about a little Amish girl named Naomi who is in charge of her family's chickens. One day, along with her little sister, Ruth, they gather the eggs and come upon a fancy looking egg.

They put it under a chicken, and it hatches! We won't say anything more, since we don't want to ruin the surprise. Mom says that this is a simple way to show the Amish way of life to children.

I hope you will enjoy this book as much as we do!
