Item description for Miss Fannie's Hat by Jan Karon, Joy Peskin & Toni Goffe...

When ninety-nine-year-old Miss Fannie gives up her favorite pink straw hat with the roses, to help raise money for her church, she receives an unexpected reward.

Publishers Description
Ninety-nine year old Miss Fannie has lots of hats, and she loves them all. But her favorite is the pink straw hat with the silk roses. That's the one Miss Fannie has worn on Easter Sunday for the past thirty-five years. When Miss Fannie's preacher asks her to donate one of her precious hats to the church auction, choosing which one to part with is no small task. This heartwarming story about the rewards of unselfish love will enchant readers young and old.

The star of Miss Fannie's Hat is based on Jan Karon's own grandmother. "My grandmother, Miss Fannie, was so wonderful I wanted to share her with everyone," says Jan Karon. "I wrote Miss Fannie's Hat to give both children and adults a sense of family, to give them the grandmother or great-grandmother they never had, or always wished they had. Briefly, the story is about sacrifice--and the rewards that can come when we give with a willing heart."

More About Jan Karon, Joy Peskin & Toni Goffe

Jan Karon Born Janice Meredith Wilson in 1937, Jan Karon was raised on a farm near Lenoir, North Carolina. Karon knew at a very early age that she wanted to be a writer. She penned her first novel when she was just 10 years old, the same year she won a shirt-story contest organized by the local highschool.

Karon married as a teenager and hand a daughter, Candace. At 18, Karon began working as a receptionist for a Charlotte, N.C. advertising agency. She advanced in the company after leaving samples of her writing on the desk of her boss, who eventually noticed her talent. Karon went on to have a highly successful career in the field, winning awards for ad agencies from Charlotte to San Francisco. In time, she became a creative vice president at the high-profile McKinney & Silver, in Raleigh. Wile there she won the prestigious Stephen Kelly Award, with which the Magazine Publishers of America honor the year's best print campaign.

During her hears in advertising, Karon kept alive her childhood ambition to be an author. At the age of 50 she left her career in advertising and moved to Blowing Rock, North Carolina, to pursue that dream. After struggling - and failing - to get a novel underway, Karon awoke one night with a mental image of an Episcopal priest walking down a village street. She grew curious about him, and started writing. Soon, Karon was publishing weekly installments about Father Tim in her local newspaper, the The Blowing Rocket, which saw its circulation double as a result. "It certainly worked for Mr. Dickens", says Karon.

The Father Tim stories became Karon's first Mitford novel, At Home in Mitford. The book has since been nominated three times for an ABBY (American Booksellers Book Of the Year Award), which honors titles that bookstore owners most enjoy recommending to customers. The fourth Mitford novel, A New Song, won both the Christy and Gold Medallion awards for outstanding contemporary fiction in 2000. A Common Life, In This Mountain, and Shepherd's Abiding have also won Gold Medallion awards. Out to Canaan was the first Mitford novel to hit the New York Times bestseller list, subsequent novels have debuted on the New York Times list, often landing the #1 spot.

Karon says her character-driven work seeks to give readers a large, extended family they can call their own.

Jan Karon currently resides in Blowing Rock, in the state of North Carolina. Jan Karon was born in 1937.

Reviews - What do customers think about Miss Fannies Hat?

Miss Fannie's Hat  Aug 26, 2006
This enchanting story relays a simple yet most valuable message about sharing, being unselfish, and caring more for others than yourself. Fannie experiences, first-hand, the joy of giving and the often-unexpected pleasure you realize from it. In keeping with Jan Karon's other work, the text is finely crafted and carefully worded to create interest and hold the attention of the reader. The illustrations add to the charm and delight of the volume.
This book is a gem!  Jul 10, 2006
This book tells a wonderful story and demonstrates great worth and value of senior citizens. Uses lots of descriptive terms and illustrates some of the main character's memories from a long-past time period. Excellent for use in a Sunday School or Christian school setting.
A story for young and old  Jan 10, 2006
This short, well put together story is for children of all ages. It's very different from Jan Karon's "Tale of an Honest Bunny" or "The Trellis Seed." I read this to my six year old son. When we finished, he actually sighed and said, "What a nice story." I then shared it with my mother who called me crying saying it was beautiful. I highly reccomend it.
Heart Warming Timeless Delight  Aug 20, 2005
I was, admittedly, already a fan of Jan Karon when I picked up Miss Fannie's Hat for my six year old daughter. Jan Karon amazed me once again with her ability to charm her readers with vivid descriptions, rich imagery, and humor. She used just enough references to the main character's faith to get her message across without being pushy about it. She once again showed how a character with grounded, honest values can make it work in her life. A great way to open a discussion of God to your young children, or reinforce your family values with an older one. Bravo, Jan Karon!
A beautiful story about family, faith, and sharing  Apr 12, 2004
Every time my wife or I read this story to our children, we shed a few tears (of happiness, mostly) .... thinking of aging grandmothers, of faith, of the joy of sharing the things we treasure. This short, funny, story is simply the most beautiful children's book we have ever read. You must read it!
