Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Frilly glamour queen Nancy can't wait for her best bud Bree's upcoming Butterfly Birthday. But wait! The most stylish birthday this side of Paris is scheduled for the very day of the 50th anniversary of Nancy's grandparents! Has fate ever struck a crueler blow? Fortunately, author Jane O'Connor and artist Robin-Preiss Glasser have concocted a picture book that successfully extracts Fancy Nancy from her Major Life Crisis.
Children's Literature - JoAn Watson Martin
Fancy Nancy never uses a short plain word when a fancier one will do. She loves to speak in French and is positive that butterflies understand French. Her friend Bree is having a butterfly birthday. The cake, the invitations, the costumes all carry out the butterfly theme. Nancy is excited to dress as an iridescent azure butterfly. But the best laid plans of a little girl sometimes go awry. When Nancy's mother uses fancy words to inform her about the fiftieth anniversary party of her grandparents, fancy words do not make Nancy feel any better. Mad is not a strong enough word—she scowls, she sulks, she storms around the house. What can her parents do to help her accept the inevitable? How can Nancy forget to be furious long enough to have fun? Jane O'Connor is an editor at a publishing house. She continues to offer a thoughtful and important message. Robin Glasser's full page art captures the attention with gorgeous flowers, dressed-up dogs, twirling children and of course, exquisite butterflies. Reviewer: JoAn Watson Martin

    A reviewer

    These books are so much fun for your little Divas. I love that it introduces my daughter to 'fancy' words and encourages her to expand her vocabulary even more. We started with 'Fancy Nancy' a week ago and my 4 year old already has it memorized. We just bought everything else 'Nancy' tonight. The books are wonderful, which is a fancy word for great. They encourage individuality, self expression, imagination and vocabulary expansion. And they are just fun to read!

    Terrific for teaching expressions

    Sweetly drawn characters with child friendly prose. Cute story with a little lesson about conversational expressions. Its a fun read aloud that I use to introduce idioms and colloquialisms. Students love to hear this book and it is always on the check out 'wait list'.

    Fancy Nancy knows butterflies

    Fancy Nancy Bonjour Butterfly is a new favorite for my 4 year-old daughter. We read this book often and she always enjoys it. The writing is intriguing for young kids and the illustrations are wonderful! She loves the expressions on Nancy's face when she is expressing the disappointment in not being able to go to her best friend's butterfly birthday party. Besides her face, we noticed that her butterfly antenna and wings are also drooping which adds to her mood. My daughter loves how Nancy teaches new "fancy" words and teaches about butterflies. The book also teaches about handling difficult situations since Nancy can't go to her friend's party because she has to go to her grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary party. Nancy shows how to admit when you've behaved wrongly.

    Vocabulary Fun

    My four year old daughter loves this series about a little girl who loves being fancy. As you read the story she uses words like azure, extraordinary, iridescent, etc. and then says which is fancy for.... so it's a great way to add to her vocabulary.

    Astoundingly Wonderful

    Fancy Nancy is an absolute read for any little girls and their Grammies. I ran into these books for the first time just two weeks ago and fell in love with the stories, the use of words, and most especially the illustrations which are just too precious for words. Every Grammy needs to share these books with their grandchildren. This Grammy Nancy now needs to learn to be fancy.

    Fancy Nancy a Must Read

    This book is another example of how children can still dream and pretend. In a world where children are forgetting to play pretend or use their imaginations Fancy Nancy hits the bullseye! It is a must for any parent who has little ones. As a second grade teacher and a Nancy it is a great addition to your classroom library.
