The Golden Name Day (Paperback)
A name day all her own Nine-year-old Nancy had never heard of this Swedish custom-much like a big birthday party-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 day set aside especially for her.
Although the problem of a name day for Nancy is never far from anyone's mind, her life on the Benson farm is a busy one filled with delight. Living with family where 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.
