PreS-Gr 2–For her birthday, Nancy is treating her mother to all the comforts of a spa day in their backyard. After she receives a facial, manicure, pedicure, and frightening new hairstyle, Nancy calls in reinforcements (her neighbor, an honest-to-goodness beautician). In typical “Fancy Nancy” style, this installment includes a glittery cover and girly illustrations. Nancy's many fans are sure to enjoy this latest adventure and may be eager to try some of the recipes, from a soothing sea-salt foot soak to a yum yum yogurt parfait.–Lindsay Persohn, Crystal Lake Elementary, Lakeland, FLα(c) Copyright 2010.
