Day 114: Fancy Nancy

by John Nelson April. 24, 2010 3282 views

Since my wife was laid up after her surgery, I got to hang out with the girls all day long! We hit up the regular spots: Rick's Bakery for breakfast, and Barnes & Noble for story time and reading.

During B&N's 3:00 PM story time, they held a Fancy Nancy [] Poetry party. Fancy Nancy is a staple book in my household, so the girls were pretty stoked. With balloons, boas, fuzzy-tipped pencils, and lots of pink, the Kids Area was decked out. The helpers read kids poetry and taught the kids what poetry was and how to write some simple poetry.

The girls had a blast! Free cookies and juice helped with that, too.

Brooklyn laughs at something Emma was doing across the table.

The helpers read poetry to the kids.

Each kid got a pencil & notepad to practice writing poetry. Brooklyn made lots of squiggles and L's.

The Fancy Nancy notepad each kid received went over REALLY well with my girls. They love writing.

These couldn't be cuter - or better. Love the one of B with the book - great focus and clarity! I guess I have to save it to my faves....
