Nelson's Fun Fair Holiday is a children’s educational picture book written by Claire Carey and illustrated by India Danter. Nelson was beside himself with excitement over his trip to Ross-on-Wye. He would be staying with his Aunt Claire in her caravan at the carnival and fair. As the two of them drove to the carnival site, Nelson discussed the rides he was planning on riding and the different activities he would be enjoying there. He also couldn’t wait to see his cousins, Claire’s sons, who would also be there. After they arrived, Nelson was thrilled to see the fair workers getting everything set up. Before he went to check things out, Aunt Claire gave him a map she had drawn. It showed him landmarks to navigate by and gave him boundaries to stay within. He would be on his honor to remain within those boundaries; they would ensure his aunt could always make sure he was safe. There was so much to see and explore, and best of all, his friend, Cy, and his family were there as well. Nelson just knew this was going to be an awesome experience.
Claire Carey’s Nelson's Fun Fair Holiday shares with young readers a boy's experiences as part of the team behind a fair and carnival. While most kids have been to fairs, carnivals, and farmers' markets, most of them don’t know about the work and maintenance that these events involve. Carey’s story gives them a real feel for the adventures a child would have in Nelson’s shoes, and the opportunities they would have to be a part of the action, to help the fair workers and feel a part of it all. They also get to see how Nelson grows as a result of his experiences. India Danter’s cheery and colorful illustrations bring the fair and carnival to life brilliantly and help instill the festive spirit that lives in these events. Nelson's Fun Fair Holiday is highly recommended.
