The second-grade students of Washington Drive Primary School received a special visit from Jane O’Connor, author of the popular Fancy Nancy collection.

The students expressed their excitement by dressing in their “fanciest” attire for the visit, in which Ms. O’Connor read her newest book, Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet. She also explained that part of being “fancy” was exhibiting good posture, and gave twenty audience members the chance to demonstrate this by balancing bananas on their heads.

The prolific author discussed some of the process involved in writing and publishing a book and took the time to answer students’ questions. Before leaving the school, she signed and personalized copies of her books presented to her by students.

The members of the audience enjoyed the time they had to share with the accomplished author.
