Just Plain Fancy
Written and Illustrated by Patricia Polacco
Just Plain Fancy is the story of a young Amish girl, Naomi and her little sister. Naomi longs to have something fancy in her life but Amish beliefs do not allow for that. One day as she and her sister are searching the field for eggs laid outside of the hen house, they stumble upon one that looks different. The girls slip the egg into a nest and when it hatches, they name the chick Fancy. As Fancy grows he certainly lives up to his name and the girls are frightened that their Amish community will shun him for being too fancy.
Pick up this fantastic story by a Michigan author to find out what happens next.
Let’s finish these last two days strong!
God bless America and…Go Eagles!
