This is a classic story, the moral of the story is very important for everyone.
We will learn from the story in any economic decision,
That you should spend a little more to get a lot more.
Good story with an important moral

4.0 out of 5 stars "Teaches Children The Value Of Things"......Learning To Share"...... 3 Aug. 2013
By Robin Lee - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book to teach children to value the things they have because other children may not be so lucky...Also, learning to share..The illustrations are good, colorful and gives the old world feel for the tale of the "Fancy Hat"...The Lord of the Town is bored with his old, good hat and wants a brand new one made...He goes to his Tailor and picks the hat from the catalog..The tailor creates the new "Fancy Hat" perfectly for the Lord he is overjoyed that everyone will notice him...But his new hat from last year is still in very good condtion, so he sells it back to the tailor.....When they both arrive to church the next morning will anyone notice their new "Fancy Hat's".........

Because the Tailor has a new "Fancy Hat" for himself now....

"This is the "Modern Day Morale of the Story" is: What may be old and useless to one person or child, may be a brand new treasure to someone else who is poor and less fortunate than other's....So, before you throw your old toys or clothes away, ask Mom and Dad if you can donate them to other children.....

Sorry, but I got a different interpretation from this story when done reading...Mine comes from the heart and this is geared towards 4-8 yr olds, not Investment Bankers, Commerce or Stockbrokers....So, I think this is an "old folk lore", but that is not how we think today.....

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice story reinforced by great drawings 9 April 2013

Yael Aharoni tells a nice story which is illustrated with esthetic drawings. Children may enjoy the story and the sophistication of the main character who is a prominent person in his community.

4.0 out of 5 stars The moral of the story? 3 Aug. 2013
By J. Chambers - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Fancy Hat" is about a wealthy man who commissioned the local tailor to make him a new, very fashionable and trendy hat. The townspeople were duly impressed when the man showed up in church wearing his fine new hat.

With the simple text and color illustrations, it's an enjoyable story for kids up to about the first grade. The author says that the moral of the story is that sometimes it's worth investing a bit more money to enjoy a new hat every year. That argument came across as kind of flat to me. I've known of people who felt that way about getting a new car every year or two, but that's more of a personal preference than it is a moral. If anything, the story contained a simple example of how commerce works, with the wealthy man paying the tailor, who in turn paid others for the materials in the hat, and so on.

The author stated that the story has been handed down from generation to generation, so I assume that "Fancy Hat" is based on an old folk tale. Perhaps in an earlier era and culture, the story did contain a meaningful moral for people, but I don't see that today.

I loved the illustrations which are different to most children's books I've seen.
The book is written in an easy to read language as well.
