Golden Name Day
- Category: Ages 8-12, Golden Age, Worldwide Books
A name day all her own! Nine-year-old Nancy had never heard of this Swedish custom—a big party like a birthday celebration—until she came to live with Grandma and Grandpa Benson on their farm. To her disappointment, Nancy learns that her name is not in the Swedish Almanac, so there is no Nancy Day to celebrate.
Although her name day problem is never far from anyone’s mind, Nancy’s life on the Benson farm is a busy one. When the slightest occasion calls for celebration — complete with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and animals — it’s impossible to be unhappy.
Fresh new illustrations make this classic tale as sunny as the yellow roses Nancy loves, and as memorable as the marvelous way in which she, at last, gets a name day all her own.
