In the latest in the Fancy Nancy I Can Read series, Nancy once again has fun with concepts and words in a story that breaks the nerd stereotypes. This time, cute, prancing Nancy is excited about a class trip to the planetarium for a night sky show, and the cheerful ink-and-watercolor pictures show her in her frilly outfits, thrilled about the Big Dipper, the various constellations, and the earth’s distance from the sun. Kids will be equally caught up in the astronomy and in the twists and turns of Nancy’s daily drama. Grades K-2. --Hazel Rochman
