I find the over-sized books too hard to manage with one person turning pages, reading, and sitting it somewhere.

Even children can get caught up in the stress that holidays can often bring, and this book describes those feelings in a very age appropriate way. My girls are just becoming familiar with the "Fancy Nancy" series, but boy, do we love her! In this story, Nancy and her family prepare for Christmas by choosing and decorating a tree, waiting for grandpa to arrive, and doing some Christmas crafts.
