Fancy Nancy thinks she knows all there is to know about poison ivy. However, when she picks a beautiful big bouquet of wildflowers for her teacher's birthday, she ends up itching all over. While convalescing at home, Nancy decides to research poison ivy to become a real expert. Her neighbor brings her some cream that she has made from jewelweed, which helps Nancy's skin begin to heal. She visits her friend Bree, who has planned a surprise party for her, with dancing to the rock-and-roll song "Poison Ivy." Nancy is a spirited character, and her personality makes this beginning reader both fun and funny. She has a whimsical flair for living her life with style and animation. Nancy relishes big words (all parenthetically defined) with an occasional French phrase thrown in just for spark. The text has short sentences and easily decoded words. Illustrations are charmingly rendered in ink and watercolor, with lots of comical detail.-Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME

Fancy Nancy begins to journal and learns so much in the process. This book encouraged my 4 1/2 year old grand daughter to want to journal like Fancy Nancy and explore the world around her. Light and easy reading.

My granddaughters always learn from Fancy Nancy. This time she tells us about "leaves of three" and how itchy we can be. Again, a wonderful feast of words and colors. Filling our library with Fancy Nancy is a treat.
